Review: ***+ $ Nugan Estate Frasca's Lane Vineyard Chardonnay, King Valley, Australia, 2010 = BEST VALUE

Check out today's pricing and retail availability for Nugan Estate Frasca's Lane Vineyard Chardonnay.

Original tasting and review : This is Nugan Estate Frasca's Lane Vineyard Chardonnay, King Valley, Australia, 2010, finished at 13.5% alcohol and first sampled four years from vintage date, in November, 2014.

In the glass: Light yellow gold.

On the nose: Poured at room temperature and swirled vigorously, shows clean bright grasses and some creaminess.  From the aroma, seems like this will be lightly sweet, full and layered.

On the palate: The primary elements on the palate are in fact first showing a toasty coconut creaminess, like the roasted insides from an Almond Joy.  That coats your palate and slowly fades to a bright, lightly acid wash.

In summary: Overall, rates three stars with a big plus on the five-star Spirit of Wine scale.  Best value.
