Trumpeter Familia Rutini Chardonnay Tupungato 2005

External Review by Premium Wine & Spirits:

Possibly the best value in Chardonnay I've encountered this year, Trumpeter's 2004 Chardonnay roars from the glass with floral aromas. An extremely vinous offering, it expands to reveal a suave, lush, opulent personality redolent with expressive, exquisitely ripe white fruits. Fermented as well as aged in equal proportions stainless steel and oak barrels (30% new), this wine, a resounding success for Trumpeter, has loads of character and a long, seamless finish. Enjoy it over the next 2 years.

Lightweight in its approach, but still sturdy. The bouquet offers melon, tropical notes and white flowers, while the palate deals mostly cantaloupe and banana. A modestly oaked wine without a ton of stuffing. Good for basic sipping.

Round and ripe, with good pear tartine and baked apple notes, followed by a toasty finish. For fans of the style. Drink now.
