Millbrook Proprietor's Special Reserve Chardonnay 2010
Editorial Reviews for Millbrook Proprietor's Special Reserve Chardonnay
Rather oaky on the nose with slightly dried dark fruits and melon, peach and citrus pith aromas. A little milky and vanilla accented as well. This is pretty well rounded on entry, though it is rich and very finely balanced. There’s fine ripe fruit here. Peach, orange and vanilla flavors are all underpinned by a nice base of wood spice. Creamy and smooth, this shows fine length and a certain elegance though the sweetness from the wood and vanilla imprint are quite pronounced. 89pts
Acidic but still pretty smooth, with light green apples and grassy notes. Surprisingly hot on the nose though. Tastes tart and acidic with a long finish.
Grassy perfume aroma, with mild tropical/kiwi fruit notes. The mouth is acidic enough to provide good support and supplements the creaminess. The oak is pretty mild. I really like the mouthfeel on this one, good balance.
Food Pairings for Millbrook Proprietor's Special Reserve Chardonnay
A rich, toastiness on the nose leads to flavors of soft citrus, pineapple and interesting notes of honeyed ginger and Asian spices. The well-balanced acidity makes this wine an especially good partner for rich foods.
