Tilia Chardonnay 2011
External Reviews for Tilia Chardonnay
Medium straw-yellow. Peach, lemon and spicy, smoky oak on the nose. Round, soft and dry, with exotic fruit and peach flavors complemented by oak notes of vanilla and spice; could use a bit more intensity and definition. Finishes broad, dry and slightly warm, but shows good texture and mouthfeel for an entry-level wine.
This forward, open-knit white shows Honeycrisp apple, pastry and light melon flavors, which glide through the finish. Drink now.
The 2011 Tilia Chardonnay is harvested early at around 11% potential alcohol (pH 3.23) and is fermented in stainless steel and cement and undergoes a light aging for six to nine months. It has a clean, lightly honeyed bouquet with touches of lime blossom and quince. The palate is medium-bodied with a slightly viscous entry. There is good weight here and it offers a generous, pleasing, shaved ginger-tinged finish. Drink now–2015.
