2017 Tate Wine Chardonnay – A Solid Meeting of New World & Old World Styles

Posted on

2017 Tate Chardonnay. It is both an old world Chardonnay with finesse and slight citrus hints, combined with a new world Chardonnay style, with just the right amount of oak and a controlled secondary malolactic fermentation, to create a slight butter taste to this intoxicating white gem. On the eye a light golden color and medium viscosity. Aromatics are slightly floral. Lemon and grapefruit abound with a slight fresh peach. Bright, crisp and very clean made by extraordinary winemaker David Tate. Paired with onion topped chicken, Yukon Gold potato and fresh garden salad.
