West Cape Howe Styx Gully Chardonnay 2009

Many people would be serving chicken on Christmas day so I thought I would taste a few Chardonnays that could match this festive bird.  You will need something with plenty of flavour if you are thinking of using a creamy sauce.

Massive attack of flavours flow from the bottle. My tongue is left assaulted after the creme brulee, toasted hazelnuts and peach and pineapple sorbet leave my mouth.  This is the sort wine is for people that love the heavily worked wines in the ripe end of the spectrum.  While I did like the wines quality it didn't creep up the whole of my palate.
