As I am writing this post I am looking for the picture of the wine which I filed so well I can’t find it. The post will have to do with no visuals.
This wine at first sight you know is a Chardonnay but if you are thinking the weight of a buttery Chard, you are mistaken. This wine is a unoaked Chardonnay and the first of its kind at Whitecliff.
On the nose I get lime, pear and a sharpie. Once it enters the chambers the taste is passion fruit, pineapple and citrus. The finish is long and lime.
This is a very refreshing wine. I’ll be the first to admit, when winemakers began experimenting with unoaked Chardonnays I was not a fan. I think as perfection sets in I am really beginning to like the unoaked Chards.
