Cycles Gladiator Chardonnay, California, USA 2018
100% Chardonnay with some oak.
Aromas of peach and apricot with notes of bosc pear and apple and a hint of toasted oak. Strong flavors of green apples, tropical fruits and marzipan. Extended lees aging adds a rich mouthfeel but the acid carries the day.
"This spicy, oaky and attractive wine that was aged 14 months on the lees carries vivid aromas and flavors of ginger, nutmeg and toasted nuts backed by ripe pears. It is full, mouthfilling and has a good, lingering finish."
90/100 points, Jim Gordon, Wine Enthusiast
Great with poultry dishes.
