Ryan Nelsen

Ryan Nelsen Chardonnay 2011
N: Very clean, clear and familiar bouquet of New Zealand Chardonnay - forward on the nose with peaches and cream suggestions -  vanillin oak influences with a light nutty edge.

P: Still retaining some youthful firmness from the acidity (a good thing for me) a wine that will offer some cellaring if you like. Dry with a creamy texture and flavors that suggest peach, roasted peach, a little nectarine and pear. Medium to medium+ acidity and medium length. A very approachable style in that you can enjoy it now (with food - mostly) or put a half dozen away and drink them over the next 2 years.
3.5 Stars
