Alterum Chardonnay 2009

Alterum appears to be a Vintage Cellars label.  Their 2009 chardonnay initially had that tinny lower priced chardonnay note that I don't like, but then opened out to show restrained lemon and citrus characters.  The palate was a level above the aroma - really quite pleasant: some length, acidity, some oak but not much, white peaches, restrained.  Pretty good.  83 to 84 points.
