Swinging Bridge Reserve Chardonnay 2011


Gee, there's some interest here in this chardonnay from the Orange region.  Aromatics of spice, minerals, grapefruit and lemon, with a purity of expression that is appealing.  The palate sees high acid, some youthful petillance and towards long length.  This wine is very good in quality due to its long length and complex nuances of minerals combined with a depth of lemon and steel, all the while retaining its balance.  A very good wine indeed.  Very Good
