Cousiño-Macul Chardonnay Antiguas Reservas 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Tasting Notes Pale straw in color, this wine offers lively aromas of golden delicious apples, lime, pink grapefruit and a hint of hazelnuts and creme brulee from the barrel fermentation. On the palate, it is rich and viscous with flavors of apples, vanilla, tropical fruit and minerals. It finishes pleasantly long with the apple fruit and subtle minerality lingering to the end. This is a food-friendly wine that can be enjoyed with crab cakes, roasted chicken and pan fried fish.

It is straw colored and pours cleanly. The nose is pear, citrus, apple, white flowers and a bit of toast. Although aged in oak, this is not an oaky chardonnay. The flavor of apple,pear and grapefruit are nicely balanced. The finish reveals a whiff of oak, but wonderfully integrated and balanced. This balance is rare in a wine in this price range.

    Kind of a crowd pleaser. Pears, matchstick, kettle corn, and lemon aromas come out of this clear and bright pale straw colored wine. It enters the mouth with mild citrus and golden delicious apples surrounded by oak and weight down by butter. Luckily the well-balanced acids keep your interest well into the long finish. A great bargain Would I drink this regularly? Why not? But, in reality, it isn't my cup of Chard so I probably wouldn't.
