Incredibly pale. I don't think I've ever seen such a pale Chardonnay. Nose has some citrus but more vanilla of oak. Yup, I think the oak shows up in the mouth--vanilla, banana and fairly light on the acid. An OK wine. US$12.99 at Wine Club in Santa Ana.


Winemaker's Notes:

More European in style than Californian, restrained use of oak and limited lees stirring during aging allows the tropical and citrus fruit flavors to flourish. This wine is an excellent bridge between the crisp, unwooded Southern Hemisphere style and the rich, oaky, buttery style of California. Vanilla aromas, sweet oak flavors and a subtle cream texture from the sur lies aging and malo-lactic fermentation, give the wine a delicious mouthfeel and lengthy finish while the tank ferment portion keeps the wine bright, crisp and lively. Crisp and refreshing on the palate, this delicious food wine is a delightful accompaniment to a broad spectrum of dishes, or, served slightly chilled, as an aperitif.
