Chapel Hill Chardonnay 2012

2011 Bottle Image
"The final evolution in our unwooded Chardonnay" came appended to the bottle. The 2011 was the first vintage of the Chapel Hill Foundation Chardonnay that I had tasted, it was the 21st year of production, and it was also the first time in which a small component of the wine saw a little time in barrel.

So, to 2012, forward with lemon creme on approach; grapefruit hints - both aromatically and also by way of acidity - creamy with sufficient drive form the acidity to meander its way around that. 

Average length of flavour, yet considering the price point I would have to consider that it over delivers. A view in common with that 2011 example. Touch and go for a point higher: 87 - Average
