Chatom Chardonnay Calaveras County 2011

Member Review by jdot:

An interesting aspect of this wine is that it's not aged in oak barrels. This allows the full flavor of the chardonnay grape to come alive. The result is a full-bodied but fruity wine without the oakiness traditionally associated with chardonnay. I paired it with a rice, beans and barbecue chicken meal I made. Both the sweetness of the barbecue sauce and the heat of some cayenne pepper brought out different aspects of the wine. I would definitely buy this again.

Refreshingly light citrus essence of fruit cocktail and a light vanilla nose. Viscous mouth feel with golden apple and quince has an elegant well-balanced finish of Asian pear and thyme. Winemaker's note

Fragrance of fresh pears peaches with spicy floral undertones. Viscous mouthfeel with creamy textures honey and nutmeg. Flavors of nectarines lead you to the well balanced estate fruit and elegance in finish.
