Collaboration Wines Arulent Chardonnay 2013
A bold and expressive bouquet centering on the oak and spice aromas then lemon and grape fruit suggestions followed by roasted stone fruits; youthful and intense. On the palate - dry, crisp, fresh and youthfully vibrant on the palate with flavors of oak and oak spice followed by fresh and roasted fruits. This is a wine very much in the throws of youth so requires dedicated cellar time (2 years). If you must drink it then decant and serve with rich and flavorful food. Lots of potential with medium+ complexity.
enticing bouquet of freshly squeezed black doris plum, blackberry and hints of chocolate - all wrapped in a blanket of medium+ intensity of oak. On the palate - dry, firm, fruity and vibrant with flavors that reflect the nose, a light tobacco spice, firm youthful tannins, medium+ acidity and complexity. Juicy too with a lushness to the fruit. Plenty of development time ahead. Well made.
