William Hill Chardonnay 2007
Editorial Reviews for William Hill Chardonnay
Slow to open yet unrolls slowly with sweet vanilla, crème brulee, cream, cedar, and fleshy yellow fruit tones. Nice balance and concentration in the mouth with deep flavors of caramel, crème brulee, orange peel, and sweet baked pear fruit tones. A touch viscous in the mouth but with good freshness, particularly on the sapid finish which shows a refreshing touch of mineral cut. The finish is a bit staccato but comes back repeatedly with balanced layers of cream and fruit. 90pts
The nose vaguely reminds me of incense, something you would find in a head shop. Banana and mango also. The mouth is a bit oaky and really buttery. Altogether very pleasant and interesting.
Creamy and clean with nice balance of acidity, sugar and butteriness. The apple on the palate is muted, and the finish is long and creamy.
A big grainy blanket of spiced caramel cream. Slow spicy finish. Lots of fun.
A nice toasted nut quality to this chardonnay amidst the fruit. - Tasted at Total Wine & More 3/27/10
