The flavors of the 2008 Quinta de Gomariz Espadeiro Rose are fairly mild, primarily wild strawberries. The aromas of this rosé are also mild - rather than anything specific, it simply seems to smell clean, almost like rain.
The 2009 Ballentine Chenin Blanc is a dry, medium-bodied wine with a crisp, tart acidity and tangy, citrus flavors with some mineral notes. The alcohol of the Ballentine Chenin Blanc is quite strong so keep that in mind - you're better off keeping it very chilled when drinking. If you let this 2009 Ballentine warm up too much, the alcohol will become too harsh and the wine will be unpleasant to drink.
The 2008 Wyatt Chardonnay is a pale greenish-yellow with clear edges. The nose of the Wyatt Chardonnay is clean with distinct notes of pear, melon, and other tropical fruits. This Chardonnay is a dry, full-bodied wine with crisp acidity and moderate flavor intensity. For a Chardonnay that isn't oaked at all it's hard to avoid the impression that it still tastes a little oaky, but that's countered a bit by the mineral flavors.
Appellation: 20% Monterey County, 35% from Yolo County, 45% Mendocino County
The aromas of the Lindemans Bin 65 Chardonnay are slightly tropical in nature with a bit of melon. The overall intensity is moderate, but not clearly identifiable. It's difficult to detect any oak in the bouquet. This medium-bodied Chardonnay dry with flavors of creamy or buttery tropical fruit - primarily pineapple and perhaps again a bit of melon. There may also be some citrus around the edges, but that's difficult to say for sure.
This medium-bodied wine is dry with a nice, crisp acidity. I thought that there was also a bit of an alcohol burn at the standard drinking temperature, so I would recommend trying it chilled a bit cooler than other Chardonnays. The finish was a bit flat, which was disappointing in an otherwise decent Chardonnay. The flavors themselves were generally fruity and citrus, though no more specifically identifiable.
