Stonehaven Chardonnay Limestone Coast 2007

Member Review by webwckr:

Very pleasant and surprisingly drinkable with a smooth finish and a dash of butter. Peach and melon are rounded out with very slight oak. Finish is even nice. Well worth it for everyday quaffing. Don't pass this one by!

    This wine offers a lifted bouquet of ripe tropical melon with fresh oak complexity. Clean flavors of rockmelon and tropical fruit are balanced with a full, creamy palate. Cold fermentation was implemented to retain maximum fruit flavor and freshness. Further character and creaminess was achieved by generous lees contact.

    Features a complex nose of green apples, pears and pineapples accented by smoky notes. The flavors are similar folding in more vanilla and toast nuances - the oak in this wine seems to build towards the finish, while the fruit does the reverse, turning fainter and more citrusy.

    Soft and ripe, with an apricot note shining through the apple and citrus flavors. Drink now.

    Light and appealing for its creamy apple and delicate spice flavors. Drink now.

    Fruit was chosen from the vineyard for its flavor and intensity of varietal character. In the winery, selected yeast strains which enhance natural fruit character while also adding complexity were identified, and cold fermentation was implemented to retain maximum fruit flavor and freshness. Further character and creaminess was achieved by generous lees contact.

    This wine could be the poster boy for Australian Chardonnay. The nectarine and peach aromas and flavors are coddled by a touch of vanilla and the entire package is soft, juicy and easy to drink. It's nothing fancy, just yummy weekday wine.

    Light and generous, with tangy melon and citrus flavors. Drink now.
