2013 Xanadu Next of Kin Chardonnay

imageWell executed lightly oaked Chardonnay. If you love the variety this is the sort of expression you can share with friends who don’t.

Pears, lime, melon extending into sweeter tropicals. Perhaps a touch too much pineapple and fig for my tastes but that’s more a personal taste issue than a criticism of the fruit. A lick of cream and a handful of cashews. Acidity keeps everything in line. Finishes on woodspice and a welcome hint of pithiness. Lacks intensity and length but drinks well. 88
