Gitana Autograf Chardonnay 2016
This straw colored Chardonnay has aromas of lemon pith, lime juice and Granny Smith apple. On the palate there are flavors of apple pie, apple slices and lemon juice that lead to a creamy finish.
The 2016 Autograf Chardonnay was aged for four months in used French oak and comes in at 13% alcohol. Relatively rich, clean, ripe and fruity, this has a lush feel in the mouth and a friendly demeanor. The depth is pretty nice for the price, although the structure is just what you'd expect in a fruit-forward, everyday Chard. Still, this shows very well just now. It's a nice bargain that easily exceeds expectations in the short run. Just drink it young for best results. It won't reward aging.
