Kim Crawford Chardonnay Marlborough Unoaked 2003

Winemaker's Notes:

Winemaking Aer yeast was added, 50% of the wine was racked to two and three-year-old barrels to complete fermentation. Barrel fermentation and aging gives the wine its creamy mouth-feel and mellowed oak tones. e remaining 50% was cold fermented in stainless steel to retain bright fruit avors. Vintage e growing season began with cool, wet conditions in spring and early summer. By July, temperatures climbed higher than average. A welcomed cool down came in August and September. Due to the mild weather at har vest, quality was very high, as the grapes had extra time on the vine to develop ripe, balanced avors.

Kim Crawford Wines:
One of the reasons why New Zealand Sauvignon Blancs have taken the world by storm. Delightful to the point of exuberance, this is a great wine for drinking alone of with lighter fare.

I am a fan of this unoaked Chardonnay as it is a lighter departure of the traditional with a refreshing taste.
