What’s in the glass tonight July 3rd

McManis Chardonnay 2013

Off Topic: McManis Family Vineyards River Junction California Chardonnay 2013 – $$

This is a practice run for July 4th. Recommended by the American woman working at my favourite vinopolis. I don’t drink much US wines, mainly cos it’s either very expensive (Ridge et al), or you just can’t get it here.

This is a developed gold colour. 13.5% alc.

Smells opulent and tropical. Citrus and green apple. Oaky.

Tastes quite oaky too. Golden fruit. Nice line of acidity through the wine. Mouthcoating and enveloping, very long. Attractive phenolic characters – both on the nose and on the palate.

I liked it muchly.

VG 4
