Lemon, lime, buttered popcorn, citrus blossom, cream, green apple, underripe green melon with some rhine. This is a stab at a little butter & oaky California Chardonnay while trying to still express some of it's self of place. It doesn't quite succeed at either. However, it's not without some merit. I really do like the regions softer mineral style and acid in their Chardonnay's & Rieslings.

Gorgeous wine from the McLaren Vale region. I’m not usually a Chardonnay drinker but I love this one with its citrus and buttery notes
