Burrowing Owl Estate Winery 2012 Chardonnay

A Chardonnay that combines all the elements from well integrated oak through tree fruits, stone fruits and some interesting nut and lees components. The nose shows the ripeness of the vintage with nectarine, peach, baked golden apple and tropical notes along with some vanilla, hazelnut and fresh lemon zest. The palate is quite full with crisp, zingy acidity that nicely contrasts the ripe pineapple, Ambrosia apple, peach, spiced pear, caramel apple, subtle oak and creme brulee notes that linger on the long finish. Try this with the retro dish of ham steaks with pineapple or spaghetti carbonara using maple smoked bacon. — Rhys Pender, Master of Wine
