Smoking Loon Chardonnay 2007
Wine Tasting Notes Behind the light straw color are aromas of sweet spring flowers, green tea, and a touch of fresh pineapple. The palate is framed by flavors of lemon meringue, fresh papaya, limestone, and subtle nuances of clove finishing with nectarine and light vanilla oak tones. This Chardonnay pairs great with scallops over spring greens with a fresh Meyer lemon vinaigrette. Try this wine also with your favorite appetizers such as baked Brie topped with mango preserves or even mixed seafood ceviche served alongside a basket of tortilla chips.
Very pleasing. In the dead of winter this delivers a hint of summer. Fruity, smooth, very fresh.
External Reviews for Smoking Loon Chardonnay
Smooth and round, with balanced butter, citrus, apple, spice and sweet cream flavors that linger nicely. Drink now through 2006.
Starts with spicy oak and smoky vanilla flavors, and offers modest peach and tropical fruit flavors suggesting pineapple grilled on a skewer. Clean and tasty.
Complex and balanced, with smoky cedar, pear and green apple flavors that have a floral nutmeg scent. Drink now.
This is an all-around winner. Oak and butter flavors mingle with citrus and stone fruit flavors to create a well-balanced wine.
A smooth and gentle Chardonnay, this has some mineral tones from its lees, along with the scent of new oak paneling.
Complex notes of creamy oak, fig, melon and mineral are intense and vibrant, ending with a clean, fruity finish. Drink now.
