28/11/99 – Vina Porta (Chile) Chardonnay 1998

Vina Porta (Chile) Chardonnay 1998
This wine has a very flashy nose, with heaps of toasty oak and ripe peach and apricot fruit. There are little hints of sweet tropical pineapple too. The palate is quite succulent and savoury with plenty of gingery spice and an almost spearminty ripeness of fruit. There’s a nice depth, with suggestions of bitter-orange and darker flavours. A nicely balanced and delicious wine at a keen price. Oddbins 4.99
