Review: Coldstream Hills – Chardonnay (2013)

Chardonnay from Coldstream Hills

The Wine Review:

Citrus, peach and subtle oak on the nose. Slight delicate zestiness which merges into quite a strong oaky aftertaste. I wouldn’t say it tastes like grapefruit but it has a same vibe with initial citrus followed by a pleasant bitter aftertaste. Nice acidity level

Initially had it quite warm a little bit more chilled calmed the harshness of the oakiness and the wine was much better balanced, crisp and delicate. After being properly chilled, the fruitiness of the wine is more pronounced and the oaky aftertaste provides a nice backdrop

Delicate and subtle with a nice crisp finish perfect for sippng in the sun
