BlackSmith 2010 Chardonnay

"We're greeted here with a fine Chardonnay nose: one of those whiffs that could be nothing else. And honestly, at this price point, typicity is half the battle. The palate is a swirling mass of papaya, mineral, & green apple. There are biscuity subtleties here that lead me to believe this spent some time on its lees, which has also gussied up the mouthfeel. The body conveyed is medium: neither the fat style in vogue 10 years ago nor the lean, steely style that is in vogue today (a reactionary movement that has, I'm afraid, veered into overreaction). No, this is right down the middle, with the textural improvements from the oxygenating effects of neutral barrels but without any overt oak flavors. Balanced, vibrant, & lovely, this is a clever bottle of Chardonnay."
