My first introduction to unoaked or oak free chardonnay as some refer to it, was on my trip to Napa last June (Passaggio and St Supery). I now have a 3rd to add to that awesome list the 2008 Toad Hollow Vineyards Unoaked Chardonnay. Crisp, refreshing, full of fruit its one you will definitely want to drink and keep on hand.
Once in the glass the aroma of green apple crisp and fresh fills your nose. As I continued to swirl the glass citrus tickled my nose. The aroma of this wine excites you and suddenly to heck with smelling it's time to let the palate enjoy.
Just like the aroma the wine is awesome. The apple/melon combination at the beginning of the taste followed by a hint of mango is very pleasing. Love the quick hit of mineral right before the creamy finish which really lingers long.
Pick up a bottle today to share with friends this weekend. I know they will enjoy it as well.
