Kim Crawford Chardonnay Marlborough Unoaked 2005

Member Review by SDWineLover13:

This is good everyday chardonnay. I wouldn't turn it away. Subtle flavors of stone fruit and a good balance of acid. Maybe some aroma of butterscotch. This is an un-oaked chardonnay, which typically prevents that buttery taste that some people don't like in this varietal. But the odd thing is, Kim Crawford initiates a malolactic fermentation, which in the end creates a buttery taste and fuller mouth-feel, which negates the purpose of an un-oaked chardonnay...but I'm no sommelier, just a fanatic or enthusiast.

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.
