Doña Paula Los Cardos Chardonnay 2006

OK, I was in a hurry and didn’t want to spend a lot this Friday afternoon, having seen The Police (even at a reduced rate) this week and having bought tickets to La La La Human Steps in a couple of weeks. So, another Chardonnay.

A clear, medium-deep lemon-gold appearance on this Argentinian vintage. Clean, pronounced tropical fruit and oak quality on the nose. Dry, perhaps surprisingly light on the palate, perhaps slightly lacking in acidity particularly in the finish. A weaker pineapple quality with just a hint of oak. Good length. Overall good.
