Clos Du Val's 2008 Chardonnay is pale gold in color. The wine has aromas of pear, white peach and citrus. The palate is met with tropical fruit flavors, citrus and a hint of toast. This Chardonnay is rich, creamy and full bodied exhibiting balance and elegance that are characteristic of Clos Du Val's style. Fruit, oak and acidity meld together, resulting in a wine that complements food and culminates in a long, crisp finish.
"There's exceptional focus to this wine, its richness checked by acidity that delivers a laser beam of flavor down the tongue. Lemon zest, lime, mint and chalk combine in pale layers, the oak present in the structure of the wine without flavoring it overtly. A tangy white to accompany a salad of calamari, carrots and mint."
