Review a new wine!
  2003 - Penfolds Chardonnay Thomas Hyland
 May 29, 2008

1 star 1 star

 The oak kills this over oaked, fake fruit, and too much alcohol.  This wine really shows its terroir, or at least that it came from a hot Australian summer!  This isn't a wine that will make you try to get your money back, but you probably won't be buying a second bottle.

  2000 - Shafer Vineyards Chardonnay
 May 29, 2008

1 star 1 star

 I got this in a closeout for $10 - amazing I know! And for that price it was a steal, but at its normal price tag, I would say pass on this vintage. This was just too oaky, and this wine more than anything has passed its prime.  It's getting flabby and lacks the fruit it needs to be enjoyable.
