2010 The Wishing Tree Unoaked Chardonnay, Adelaide, Australia $5.99

Silverdale, WA    12% alc.    (Purchased on 5/28/14)

IMG_1588Brilliant, beautiful green/golden color.  Very pleasant aromatic nose of unadorned (i.e. unoaked) Chardonnay fruit; spiced vanilla, citrusy lemon and a touch of Creamsicle.  Soft and lush on the palate with lots of sweet/tart lemon, buttered toast, Granny Smith apple and some peach pit/almond flavors.  There’s a slight bitterness that doesn’t really detract from the overall fruit qualities.  Simple, straightforward, tasty.  Kind of the dry Riesling of the Chardonnay world.  Should be a decent food wine when you don’t want oak fighting the food.
