The 2007 Wolf Blass Gold Label Adelaide Hills Chardonnay is soft gold with a hint of
green color in the glass. The nose shows aromas of grapefruit and nectarine with fine,
integrated oak, which develops into a full, rich, yet elegant palate with varietal
Chardonnay flavors, a complex creamy texture and long finish.
SUGGESTED FOOD: Char-grilled chicken and avocado salad.
Wine SpectatorSleek and harmonious, this is balanced to show off its hazelnut-tinged pear, white pepper and spice flavors on a medium-weight frame, which wraps the finish smoothly. Drink now through 2017. 900 cases imported.
The Wine AdvocateThe 2007 Chardonnay Gold Label is sourced from Adelaide Hills, an increasingly important G.I, for cool climate varietals. A portion of the wine was fermented with native yeasts and a portion went through malolactic fermentation with lees stirring. Medium straw/gold in color, the aromatics reveal notes of toasty oak, grapefruit, nectarine, and poached pear. Medium-bodied on the palate, the wine is creamy-textured with solid depth and plenty of ripe fruit. Nicely balanced, it will provide pleasure over the next 2-3 years.
