White boned fruit and notorious oak. Chardonnay on the exuberant side.

I was in dire need of Chardonnay (surprise surprise) and our local bottle shop had this Penfolds Chardy for $16 so I thought why not!

Crisp yellow colour on the eye with whiffs of oak, minerality and flowers on the nose. When we first cracked the bottle we kept it out of the fridge as we knew without the intense fridge chill the wine would open up. It became more honeyed, yet still nice and dry. The palate actually made me think of honeydew ice cream in flavour and consistency - fruity and creamy. Put it this way, I didn't say no to a second glass.

All opinions are based on my own taste buds. Wine is subjective, so make sure you drink what you enjoy!

…”Length of flavor aftertaste with buttery flower peach melon oak lots of oak here
Orange apricot at mid palate
Layers of flavor brings with citrus pale gold on visual, a delicacy…”

Perfume like aroma
Zesty tropical citrus blossom, like a floral garden
