Taste it Again / Lost & Found02 Aug 2016
- Category: Lost & Found / Taste it Again
(December 16, 2015) ... So, some weeks ago I opened a bottle of the 2009 edition of this wine, and I can safely say it was absolute crap (both bottles) - you can read the review here. Which then sparked my interest in later years of the wine, and during a podcast taping I decided to open a 2011 Pondview Bella Terra Chardonnay to see how it was aging:
Only 4 years old and already showing overly-mature Chardonnay characteristics with plenty of barrel notes: toffee, caramel apple, decent acidity, sweet vanilla-oak - it's drinking well now but for how long? The rest of these are going in the fridge for ready to drink now accessibility.
