Chilean  Chardonnays are different from the ones produced in California. Most chardonnays from Chile have a far closer zesty style than the creamy, silky style of their California counterparts. This is due to the grapes being picked earlier, capturing the green essence of the world’s most popular white wine varietal. Big Cirrus flaunts green apple and citrus zest flavors in a slightly vibrant but full mouth feel. The finish is clean and smooth, with a short linger on the palate. If you prefer Chardonnays of a crisper nature, then Big Cirrus Single Estate is your next white wine to try.

The initial mouthful for this Chilean Chard was big and bold for 3 pours. That settled down to yield a fresh, fruity taste with a finish displaying notes of minerality. I enjoyed it despite its being unoaked; a rarity for me. Third bottle from the Wine Insiders Connesseur Collection which, so far, has proven to be a wise investment.
