|Our 2001 California Chardonnay is a bright, crisp
wine with aromas of Asian pear and apple. Flavors
of caramelized brown sugar, apples and pears are
accompanied by a full and creamy mouthfeel. This
elegant Chardonnay is clean and well balanced with
a long tropical fruit finish.
OFS is De Loach’s top Chardonnay, and in ’99 it’s taken to a late harvest
ripeness. You can almost feel the fall winds in the glass, taste the ripe
apples about to fall from the tree, the golden raisins, the golden grasses.
It’s huge, and rather statuesque for all that ripeness – there’s enough
structure to hold all the ripeness so it tastes clear, not at all muddled. For
romantic poets, or anyone in an extravagant mood.
