2007 Margaret River Chardonnay
Lot 68 2007 Margaret River Chardonnay
The nose of this delicate Chardonnay from western Australia explodes with tropical fruit full of kiwi, lemon zest, peachy aromas, and a wet, stony minerality. A floral bouquet resonates with the fresh fragrance of spring that is complemented with full peach notes and a flinty, seashell minerality on the palate. On a blind taste, even the expert connoisseur could easily mistake this wine for a neutrally oaked Chablis. The finish envelopes a refreshingly crisp, lemony citrus (the wine is well supported with acidity) with a toasty kiss of French oak. Close your eyes and let the finish linger as lemon custard comes to mind. A clean, bright, fresh wine with just a hint of oak. Enjoy with oysters, clams, or whitefish—preferably on a warm day.
Style: Full, Bold
