External Reviews for Clos Lachance Chardonnay Santa Cruz Mountains
A Chardonnay wine from California in USA. 2007 Clos LaChance Chardonnay Santa Cruz Mountains 750ml
Pale Yellow, starbright. Aromas of butterscotch, caramel, Pineapple, banana, andtoasted marshmallow. A rich, milky caramel flavor meshes well the tropical fruit aspectof the wine. The toasty oak is apparent, but balanced. Mid palate acidity through thefinish. The last thing I notice is the minerality component that is so classic Santa CruzMountains
This wine opens up with strong aromas of freshly cut green apple, melon and pear. A bowl full of tropical fruit salad (pineapples, bananas, mangos and papaya) is in there, as well as a hint of floral apple blossom. On the palate, the refreshing flavors of crisp apple and fresh citrus are balanced with an acidic component. The finish is fairly long considering that there was no oak used when making this wine. I really enjoy the lingering tropical fruit flavors of pineapple and banana.
