Louis Freycinet Chardonnay 2008

This Chardonnay from Freycinet Vineyard wine is a very pale colour with a tinge of green.

It has very little nose although a hint of oak (although I can’t tell from the label whether it in fact has been matured in oak).  The flavour is equally light, and I picked up mineral, peach and lemon flavours.  Jane got passionfruit, white peach, flint and something green.

The wine has medium acidity, short longevity and I thought it was okay although not great.  I did however taste a number of much better wines at the vineyard.
