The Oddbins Take

Anyone hoping for a Scottish Chardonnay may have had their hopes fleetingly raised upon seeing the name on this bottle. No wineries up there yet, but give it a few years - we're living in a climate of climate change. This bottle is of course made in California and McManis is the family name of the vineyard from where this Chardonnay comes. This is the rich and full-bodied style of Chardonnay that true Chard-heads demand. McDougal?, McTavish?; - McManis - Chardonn-Aye!

The wine was cold fermented in Stainless Steel and filtered prior to oak aging. A small percentage of the wine was allowed to go through Malolactic Fermentation to further add to the complexity of the wine. Medium straw in colour with aromas of pineapple, pear and melon and a faint bouquet of vanilla. Flavours of pear, apple and tropical fruits are abundant in this rich, full wine.
