So the amazing monkey came by and dropped off a bottle of the Chardonnay. I tossed it into the fridge to let it settle and cool down a bit.
On Pnp I got a great nose of honeysuckle. Smelled really nice. On the palate you get a decent amount of acidity and just a bit of mineral zip, nothing like a French Chablis but a hint of it. Pretty decent mouthfeel with the slight zip in the beginning; the acid rounding out the middle, not an overwhelming acid but balanced; and then a almost sweet aftertaste, the sweetness was from the fruits as opposed to any RS. Flavorwise, I got a mild honey and a stronger citrus, lemon. No tart green apple in this one, though the acid was clearly there. There is a slight vanilla flavor that is the most pronounced for me in the aftertaste, and its good.
It was better with food since the acid cuts through fats and oils well. It's a good wine for a meal, I think it'd be great for outdoor summer lunches. At the price offered I'm intrigued.
SWMBO liked it, she's a fan of flinty whites, and she thought it would great for parties as a food wine as it appeals to a wide range of drinkers.
