Ocean 8 Verve Chardonnay 2011
Really light and tight with acidity being the main driving force of the wine. It is bright and adds flavours of grapefruit and lemon rind before a hint of spice and creamy nuts kicks in. The balnce of the wine is so inviting that I don't think this should be cellared for that long. Keep it fresh and vigorous and then match it with seafood mains or as a first drink when your party arrives. The palate weight is really light but the intensity is very good which makes this a thinking persons wine. I like that approach a lot.
