Kim Crawford Chardonnay Marlborough Unoaked 2013
A pale straw color, this unoaked Chardonnay has a rich, fruit-foward nose with hints of pineapple, stone fruits, and melon. It is crisp and clean, and since their is no oak influence, the true expression of ripe Chardonnay shines through. It shows a nutty character and a generous mouthfeel, as well as a long finish.
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.
