Chappellet Chardonnay 2007, Napa, USA

Appearance: Clean and brilliant golden core and hues.

Nose: Strong but not overpowering presence of oak, butterscotch and vanilla with underlying mineral and ripe citrusy notes. Shall I say very ripe pineapples as well?

Palate/ Flavour: Burning sensation in the throat (high alcohol at 14%abv). Pronounced butterscotch and honeyed character with a high to medium (+) acidity to match beautifully with a crisp, long finish.

Comments: A new world chardonnay that’s nicely made with just enough oak to give it that edge to take off the sunday afternoon heat after a dimsum brunch.
