Nugan Estate Sémillon Riverina Botrytis Kln 2007

External Review by Premier Wine & Spirits:

Great value! Creamy on the palate initially, then finishes clean and crisp. Bright tropical and citrus fruits are dominant, with underlying notes of almonds, hazelnuts and vanilla. A terrific bottle to throw back after a long day, or to serve with scallops, salads or grilled chicken dishes.

Reminiscent of a French Maconnais, the medium-bodied 2004 Chardonnay exhibits a hint of spicy oak in its tropical fruit/honeyed lemon-dominated personality. Although not complex, it is an attractive, solidly made Chardonnay to drink over the next 1-2 years.

Green-gold color. Spicy pear and honeydew aromas are complemented by smoky lees and toasted nuts; smells pretty complex for this price point. Supple orchard fruit and melon flavors are gently firmed by juicy minerals and offer good palate coverage. The smoky note gains strength on the clean, persistent finish.

On the nose there is an explosion of lifted intense melon and peach flavors balanced well with oak. Some buttery, complex malolactic fermentation flavors. This wine has a great mouthful and length which is a highlight of this wine. Melon fruit flavors balance with creamy MLF characters, spicy oak, with great length and a crisp finish.

This is unapologetically warm-climate Chardonnay, featuring tropical fruit, plenty of weight and texture and a whack of vanilla and cut-wood character. It's a broad, full-bodied wine that pulls together on the finish, ending with notes of pineapple and citrus.

Readers will enjoy the 2003 Chardonnay, a Macon-Villages-styled white exhibiting notes of lemon meringue, orange, and citrus. While it sees a bit of oak, that component is not apparent in its elegant, fruit-driven, medium-bodied personality.

Juicy, with generous amounts of ripe melon and peach flavors, balanced with crisp acidity and a silky finish.
