Another salutary lesson in blind wine tasting, this one – I thought it was an oak aged California Chardonnay, given its ripeness, malo and oak toast. However, I should have realised from the evident residual sugar that this was more likely to be a Chenin Blanc. Mid-gold. Buttery, toasty aromatics, with ripe yellow fruit on the nose. On the palate ripe – actually slightly appley fruit when retasted – with moderate acidity.
