The Wishing Tree 2005 Chardonnay (wine review) (PB)

This unoaked Chardonnay from Australia is a pale straw in the glass with a nice fruity bouquet rising into the room. On the swirl, it is citrusy and pineappley and in the mouth the fine acid is mouth watering giving a solid foundation to luscious flavors that seem short lived but then return. The finish is lingering.

This is one of the best Chards I have had in a long time and is worth much more than the $8.50 I paid for it. It paired superbly with the seafood ravioli in a cheese sauce I made but is also real nice all by itself. Raise a glass of this white from down under!
