I’m not sure if I tasted this blind I’d guess it’s a Chard. Pale straw color, light bodied with apricot and lemon and a tangy but balanced acidity. A touch of oak gives it depth but not butter. Wow!

Love this: supple apricot, pear, marzipan, toasty bread. Buttery balanced with ripe fruit. Background minerality.

An elegant Oakey wine with a buttery hints. A full bodied Italian Chardonnay that refers to more established Oakey Chardonnays from USA , Australia and French Burgundy.

Grapefruit, buttery, toasty and chestnut. It reminds me of a Meursault for the wood impact. Savoury !

Classic and subtle old school chardonnay. Very rich but nothing in excess...
