Hatzimichalis Chardonnay 2009

Hatzimichalis Chardonnay 750ml 2009     
Sku: 21631

 Wine Advocate 87 points (Aug 2010)
The 2009 CHARDONNAY ?ESTATE? is fermented in French oak and aged in barriques for 3-4 months. A bit funky on the nose, particularly on opening, it nonetheless shows solidly on the mid-palate and the oak is well integrated. It arguably handles the oak in a more appealing fashion than its higher priced siblings, the Kapnias and Cava Dryos , reviewed this issue. The slight funk, which I thought might be a trace reductive, seemed largely to blow off with air. Assuming that trend continues with some extra time, that?s the only quibble. This is otherwise pretty nice for the price and many will wonder why they should bother to trade up. It has some bite on the finish, which lingers in appealing fashion. It comes in at just 12% alcohol. Drink it young and fresh. Drink now-2012.

Wine maker notes
One of the best Chardonnays in Greece, this wine is partially matured in French oak barriques and then again in the bottle. It is pale gold in color with aromas of pears, apricots and nuts.
