In the last month or so I have seen a fellow playing with a yoyo and a young lady on roller blades. These are things we don’t see much of these days. That’s not to say they haven’t been out there, it’s just they haven’t been as popular as they used to be. Now, I could only do the basics with a yoyo, nothing skilful and, when it comes to roller blades, well, let’s just say we were never friends.
Just like the yoyo and roller blades, unwooded chardonnay has been around for as long as I can remember. It is still out there. You have to look a bit harder for it, that’s all. It’s just that it seems to have become, as a mate said to me, almost the “forgotten white wine”. As far as I’m concerned, it still deserves a place in bottleshop fridges.
It’s fruit forward, fruit focussed and fruitilicious on the nose and palate. It got my attention early on for sure. It’s full of a lovely bunch of fresh fruits such as peach, pineapple, honeydew melon, juicy apple and a squeeze of lemon, that have come together very nicely with balanced acidity in a way that makes it so moreish. Hello unwooded Chardonnay, it’s very pleasing to see you again my friend.
