Jacob's Creek Chardonnay Reserve 2009
The standard version of this Australian white is drinkable, one expects more of the reserve. To my taste, it's over-oaked and nearing the end of its useful life. The dominant elements are pear and citrus. $9.99, certainly a good price, but hardly a memorable wine. Tomorrow we're off for ten days afloat, followed by a week in northwestern France, at the end of which time I hope to file a detailed report on what we found to drink.
