A bit overly oaked but decent fruit, creme brulee, slight acidity and a nice finish. This gets a bit better after it warms up.
External Reviews for Rodney Strong Chardonnay Chalk Hill Reserve
Barrel fermentation in new and seasoned French oak added toasty vanilla and spice complexities. Creamy and rich on the palate. Encouraging secondary fermentation adds additional complexity, and in the glass the wine is both creamy and crisp, with ripe apple, Meyer lemon, wet stone, and spiced vanilla flavors.
