Kacaba 2006 Barrel Fermented Chardonnay
Chardonnay is a chameleon, it comes in many forms and in many colours, from pale white to dark golden yellow, and it can be manipulated to the taste of the winemaker or the palate of the customer – depending on the winery’s motivation. When discussing wines for the autumn, one would be remiss if they did not include a Chardonnay in their picks – and it’s at this time of year (with the days getting shorter and the nights cooler) that you want more oomph in your Chardonnay instead of less. This Kacaba offering does the trick. Big buttery and vanilla on the nose – which might lead you to believe you’ll be chewing on a stave when this wine is in your mouth – but surprisingly no. Butter for sure enters the mouth, but then so too does vanilla, apple cinnamon/nutmeg and a touch of oaky goodness. The finish combines the best of what makes this wine so enjoyable sweet apple-buttered oak … now that’s what I call a wine to fall for. Price: $25.95
