Grape Variety: Chardonnay
Category: White Wine
Region: Russian River Valley
Format: 750 mL
Producer: Mirimar Estate
Alcohol: 14.2 %
Description: Old gold in colour with high intensity on the nose.
Positives: medium+ oak & toast with lemon, caramel apple & lots of spice. Full body with good acidity & long length.
Negatives: One dimensional, over toasted oak, too much fermented orange & a lot of heat coming from the alcohol. I would lay this one down for another 2 years to see if it mellows.
Hard to pair this one due to the powerful toasted oak & fermentation.
Tasted: 6 Mar 12

Out of 5 stars, I rated this wine: 2
