What’s in the glass tonight June 23rd

Esk Valley HB Chardonnay 2013

2013 Cheap Chardys: Esk Valley Hawkes Bay Chardonnay 2013 – $

Light gold in the glass. 13.5% alcohol.

Bouquet of typical golden stone and pip fruit. Young ripe pears in mouth. Citrus and minerals. Sweet also. Light mouthfeel. I see not near as much extract as the Stoneleigh of earlier.

Have to say it’s undemanding, and somewhat forgettable in such a vintage as this. I expected more. 3
