Seppelt Jaluka Chardonnay 2008

This was the only wine that I took any notes for from those consumed at the Open That Bottle Night dinner I hosted.  For no other other reason than I snuck a sneaky glass whilst cooking!

I bought this wine along with the 2007 vintage back in 2009, it has remained in my fridge since that time - some 18 months.

It opens with aromas of peach and nectarine, strong stone fruit definition generally.  In the mouth, there's some good quality oak, but not in the buttery 'fat' sense, its actually quite a lean mealy, nutty kind of wine and this shows in the dry, acidic finish.  

You get the sense that it could actually improve a little further over 2-3 years.  It paired well with a gorgeous grilled goat's cheese salad (but more of that when I post about my OTBN dinner).
