Trumpeter Familia Rutini Chardonnay Tupungato 2007
Very middle of the road wine. Decent nose of apples and oak. Not much flavor though. A bit tart for with not much body. Very drinkable, just not very memorable.
External Reviews for Trumpeter Familia Rutini Chardonnay Tupungato
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.
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.
