Fielding Estate Winery 2008 Un-Oaked Chardonnay - 87pts
Availability: Direct from winery here
Date Tasted: August 8th, 2010
Tasting Notes: For white wine lovers who prefer a crisp expression of fruit flavours rather than an oaked set-piece, the 2008 Un-Oaked Chardonnay from Beamsville Bench producer Fielding Estate Winery is the wine for you. Light, pale straw in colour with aromatic, candied-lemon, mineral and orchard fruit aromas. The palate is subtle with medium acidity (a bit low for a Chardonnay that hasn't been through malolactic fermentation) and medium body. Good continuity of aromas to flavours with the palate also showing a touch of tropical fruit. Enjoy this wine young.
