Nugan Estate Chardonnay Visión 2008
External Reviews for Nugan Estate Chardonnay Visión
This is lively, offering a refreshing mouthful of pineapple and spice flavors that linger easily. Drink now.
A citrusy style, with touches of riper fruit, like apple and melon. Despite the lemony aromas and flavors, this is plump in the mouth, with a fresh finish.
Light, bright yellow. Smoky pear and pineapple aromas are complicated by lees and quinine. The smoky quality carries onto the palate, joining round orchard and tropical fruit flavors and bitter lime pith. Spicy minerals emerge on the close of this solid value in chardonnay.
Aged in both stainless steel and French oak, this Australian Chardonnay has both the fruit-forward crispness of its Australian counterparts and a touch of the buttery feel typically found in California Chardonnay. This wine is extremely young and fresh, the color of straw, with a nose of freshly mown grass and herbal notes. Interestingly, there are also spices present: cinnamon and vanilla to be exact, together with complex notes of peaches and cream and a touch of citrus.
