6) Rodney Strong Chardonnay 2007, 13.8% ALC., Sonoma County, California, USA

My Review:

1) I liked this wine. It was light with a balanced citrus vs fruit taste. Very refreshing and really wanted some food.

2)This wine was deeper and rounder than the first. Still nice, but the age might have been showing. Still good notes of peach and green apple with a little bit of smoke.

3)Interesting nose! Garlic maybe with some petrol. and sugar. Honeysuckle and nectars with sugared fruits. Not for me.

4)Unoaked Chardonnay, definitely my favorite of the three. Bright acidity with pure apple and pear notes. Just what a Chardonnay should be.

5)We've moved to California and they need to put oak. They just can't help themselves. Not too bad though, still had some fruit to it.

6)and OAK! the pure California Chardonnay. Really what I was hoping to show people and just what most people are drinking. Definitely not for me.
