Moone Tsai Napa Valley Chardonnay 2009
Gorgeous and concentrated, the nose of this straw-gold Chardonnay opens with aromas of honeyed Asian pear, light caramel and crème brulee. The weighty, creamy palate is balanced beautifully by a fresh acidity, and flavors of golden apple and cream soda linger long into the finish. Careful use of oak frames, rather than overwhelms, the elegance of this wine.
In a word...Wow! This wine has balance, grace, richness, complexity, and liveliness. Aromas of spiced pear and baked golden apples along with a nice touch of caramel. The palette's creaminess is balanced out by wonderfully fresh acidity. This is one of those wine's that will wake you up and take a second look at a grape you thought had nothing new to offer!
