Top Notes For
Sipping Fine Wine

Had another bottle. Golden straw with tropical fruit aromas and floral spice. 40% of the wine was age for 12 months in French oak barrels. The cool-climate Casablanca Chardonnay shows flavors ripe pineapple, melon and tropical fruit with some banana (which I remembered from my last taste). On the finish balanced acidity, well integrated, nice soft ending with good length. Still tastes fine.

Среднетелое шардоне с характерным жареным тоном во вкусе, который очень сильно все забивает. При этом весьма хорошая кислотность. Аромат достаточно блеклый: желтые фрукты, легкая дубовость

16/20 (90/100)

Аромат сладковатый, полный, фруктово-ванильный, с заметным, но не излишним присутствием дуба, персик, цукаты ананаса, сливочное масло. Очень полно, обаятельно. Вкус полный, с тонами фруктов и выпечки, в послевкусии легкие ореховые нотки. Отлично.

Boisterous, leesy, coconuty, broad, creamy. This is a full-impact wine with just enough structure to keep it all encased.

Nice honey notes, pear and baked apples, vanilla notes and lingers nicely on the palate. Long finish.

Fruity like a pineapple, rich like a butter, and so reasonable as daily drinking wine. It should be not so cold.
