D'Arenberg the Stump Jump Chardonnay Lightly Oaked Australia White 2008
87 points Josh Raynolds (International Wine Cellar): Light yellow-gold. Deep, smoky aromas of apple, pear, floral honey and mustard seed. Creamy, gently leesy flavors of orchard fruits and melon provide good palate coverage but are a touch warm on the back. Still, a note of bitter lemon peel gives the finish good clarity. (Jul/Aug 2009)
As the label says, a lightly wooded chard. Very nice for $10.
External Reviews for D'Arenberg the Stump Jump Chardonnay Lightly Oaked Australia White
Melons, yellow peach, pear and stone fruits on the nose give away the style of this fresh easydrinking Chardonnay. The palate picks up from the nose with refreshing tropical fruits andmore yellow peach and pears. The mid palate is beautifully creamy with good weight and thesmall amount of barrel fermentation adds a touch of integrated spice.
