This got better as the weekend went on, starting on Friday quite sour & one dimensional, and finishing on Sunday as a very well rounded and pleasant wine. Would’ve definitely benefited from decanting. Quite tropical, with mango, Jonagold apple and a chalky mouthfeel. Probably wouldn’t buy again, but pleasing nonetheless.

Yesterday was #4thofjuly so here at the TC HQ we thought we’d get stuck into some American vino. I found this bottle of Kendall Jackson 2016 Chardonnay from California at Dan Murphy’s for about $30. I wasn’t quite sure what I’d got myself into, however I was most pleasantly surprised 🇺🇸
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
📝 In the glass it’s a brilliant golden yellow with notes of candied mandarins, vanilla and vanilla infused lemon 🍋 curd rising from the glass. The palate is super flavoursome and rounded with pineapple fruit sweetness balanced with creamy oak and refreshing acidity on the finish. It also conjured up thoughts of sweet corn slathered with butter for me. Juicy, full of flavour and mighty enjoyable!

Kendall Jackson Vinters Reserve Chardonnay. Well balanced tasting fresh, and very buttery, creamy finish. Quite impressed with this Chardonnay.

Slightly tart and slightly sweet. Medium in body and alcohol. So drinkable. I got the 2016 from Whole Foods for less than $20, very happy with the buy. Aromas of yellow apples and taste of green apples. Undertones of spice. Rich and toasty.
