This is definitely a richer, creamier style of Chardonnay than I expected. From a cooler climate, I was thinking it would be much more mineral-driven. And it does have that aspect, but the biscuit and hazelnut aromas and creamy textures dominate, though I was pleased by the acidity that backed it up. Not too heavy by any means, I thought it balanced rich flavors and textures with some good bright fruit and acidity. A good Chardonnay for some creamy sauces!
enjoyed the smooth fresh tastes.
This is actually a very nice wine, just a little too dense and complex for my taste in chardonnay styles. Since I got this in the wine club, and it's supposed to be representative of the countries style, I'm wondering if in some parts of Australia they make a lighter, crisper chardonnay style as well?
