3. Benmarl Reserve Chardonnay (2010)

« Prev Next » 3 of 8
Nutty and slightly oak-driven on the nose but there is a very nice, sweet peach undercurrent to the aromatics. This is a touch sweet upfront but super acids roll in, snapping this to attention with finely focused apple, apricot and faintly orange rind toned flavors. The oak is very well integrated, adding a touch of roundness and a slightly creamy edge while contributing some spice on the back end. The finish is a bit short, nutty and more oak-driven than the palate, with more creamy orange rind flavors. This is really lovely, fresh, bright and crisp with fine balance. Very nicely done. 90pts
