Beringer Private Reserve Chardonnay 2006
I just picked up some Riedel Vinum Extreme Chard glasses at a Riedel blowout sale for $12 each and decided to christen them with this very strong new world expression. On the nose I picked up grapefruit and lime at first and then, with some air, pineapple and banana. The palate was very lush and full flavoured, but not too oaky or buttery and still has quite a nice savory character to it. Really nice stuff.
