Golden Ball là-bas Chardonnay 2012

This Golden Ball chardonnay seems more complex and perhaps less stylistically polarising than my previous encounter with their chardonnay in an earlier vintage (2010).  You can read that review here.  The 2012 vintage has aromatics of cedar, nectarine and pineapple.  The palate is balanced with characters of cedar and nectarines, lovely fresh acidity and a long finish.  There's a lot to like here.
