Dona Paula Chardonnay 2007 wine review by (PB)
This Chilean Chard. is a light straw with pronounced aromas of vanilla cream and marshmallow circus peanut candy with citrus notes.
Palate--This Chilean is a little flabby but full flavored with citrus, candy cream tastes. It lingers for quite a while.
All in all it had real potential but the lack of acid kills this wine for me. It becomes a bit of a chore to drink more than a glass. Chile has some nice Chard values and Dona Paula makes a wonderful bargain Cabernet but pass on this Chard. and try another year!
