08 Ferrari Carano Emelias Cuvee ($36) ☺☺

An excellent example of Chardonnay produced by malolactic fermentation. This wine has the beautiful mango and peach fruit combination with buttery vanilla undertones. Despite being a poorer vintage this wine really brings out the best ins hat was a less than optimal season. It is oaken but delicately so, none of the overpowering oak which consumers have gown to expect.  Personally I prefer the lighter delicate unbaked chardonnays and this falls into that sector. Great food wine !
