Lerida Estate Lake George Chardonnay 2012


It gives me no particular pleasure to taste wines that I do not enjoy.  I am frankly thinking of whether to write them up at all, going forward.  Light and shade is part of life, as it is wine, so I have persisted to date.  This chardonnay release has aromatics of lemon, wet wool and a tang of yellow grapefruit.  All quite pleasant.  The palate less so.  It has impressions of high acid, and little else, disappearing seemingly in the glass and providing little to recommend.

Rating: Poor, Abv: 11%, Price: $24.50, Source: sample, Vendors: http://www.wine-searcher.com/, Website: http://www.leridaestate.com.au, Tasted: 2014
