Roessler Chardonnay Chalone Brosseau Vineyard 2006
Crisp nose of lean tropical fruit spanning from light pineapple to more overt ripe mango. As is opens, notes of butterscotch candy and perfumed oak begin to build as the mango aromas mello into accents over the growing classic Chardonnay fruit. Terrific bracing acidity on the palate provides a vibrant energy to the mouthfeel, accompanied by a backround of lush mineral viscosity around tropical fruit and oak structure. The fruit on the palate follows the development on the nose, with mango and pineapple at the start flowing into more pineapple, finally coming into a wonderful balance of tropical fruit, minerality, structure, and verve.
To me this was a more rich style chardonnay from the central coast area of California. It has good acid and a nice long finish. There are hints of tropical fruit but is more a caramel and light oak.
