Carmel Road Chardonnay 2001

Monterey County, Central Coast, California, United StatesBright citrus, green apple, mineral, honey, floral nose with a bit of matchstick. Very rich, oily entry with big buttery, vanilla, citrus, leesy flavours. Very warm, butterscotch finish with some acidity showing. The fruit was good but there's too much butterscotch oak for its cool Monterey character.Tasted: 20 December 2003Tasted by: Anthony Gismondi and Stuart TobePrices:
