Food Pairings for Yellow Tail Chardonnay
2010 vintage. It may seem a little ridiculous to rate such a widely available and inexpensive wine, but I actually got it because I was reading about it in a Snooth article on wines you should know/recognize. The aroma is not the best, but its passable, and it is not loaded with sulfites. They don't skimp on flavor, with mango and coconut notes, and a pleasant sourness. There is a bit of sugary, bubble gum taste too. I can tell it is meant to be served cold, because as it warms the flavor grows more grassy and less enjoyable. It is not great, but it is certainly worth the price.

There should be no complaints with this Chardonnay. Apple, pineapple, butter and toasted oak load the flavor package. The perfect balance and velvety mouthfeel provide a solid background. The producer recommends kangaroo tail soup with this one - and why not? You get to go to Australia, and kangaroo is low in fat and cholesterol.
Polished, toasty and spicy, with pepper and cream overtones to the pear flavors, lingering on the finish. Drink now though 2011.
Soft and fruity, with spice and floral character piling on. Yet this isn't heavy or sweet. Finishes clean. Drink now.
Straightforward and soft bodied, with lots of sweet yellow and tropical fruit; even oak and mallowy flavors tack a backseat to the bright fruit. I'm not saying it's nuanced, but this is the easy, quaffable kind of wine that draws novices into enophilia in the first place.
Citrus and honeydew flavors are further complexed by gentle French oak aging. The palate is soft yet fresh with balanced acidity and a soft creamy finish.
The [yellow tail] Chardonnay is a blend of selected parcels of fruit from some of Australia's best Chardonnay growing areas. Using fruit from the Hunter Valley, Cowra and Riverina we have created a wine with incredible freshness and character. This wine exhibits citrus and honeydew flavors further complexed by creamy French oak aromas. The palate is soft yet fresh with balanced acidity and a soft creamy finish. This wine will develop well over the next few years.
