Some barrel fermented in a combination of French and Americal oak has given this wine lovely peach and melon aromas so typical of the variety. The medium to full-bodied palate has lively Chardonnay fruit, oak flavors and a creamy texture courtesy of partial malolactic fermentation. The finish is long and dry.

Bright and fruity, offering pretty apple and pear notes on a lively frame. Drink now.

Ripe and round, a generous mouthful of pear and spice flavors, finishing smooth. Flavors echo nicely.

A bright pear and cinnamon nose opens this attractive, medium-weight wine. The palate shows peach and pear flavors, supported by brisk - some might say sharp - acidity, but flabby it isn't. Shows good balance and a nice long spicy finish, where the oak comes on strong.

Bright, youthful and simple, with a spicy edge to the green apple flavors. Best in 1999.

Sommerliches tropisches Fruchtaroma von Melonen und Pfirsich. Im Gaumen lebhafter sortenreiner Fruchtcharakter, ausbalancierte Säure, der Abgang ist fruchtig und anhaltend.

Wolf Blass wines have never been meek, and this chardonnay turns out a stylish, sophisticated performance, bold in every way. It's a complicated wine, and it gets more complicated as it takes on air. The sweet fruit element includes flavors of peaches and pineapple, and livelier aspects of green apple (try that for a fresh fruit salad). The barrel fermentation wrests additional flavors from the ripe fruit, adding scents of brown sugar, hazelnuts, and mineral aspects from the yeast lees. I'd score this higher if it didn't have a slightly bitter finish. You might score it higher if you like sequins, tap shoes, and bold Australian chardonnay.
