You're all probably a bit bored with my Chardonnay coverage by now. But I'll stick with it. Two more data points, and these are big, big wines. Chardonnay at the extreme; one from South Africa, one from Chile - but these are not wines without appeal if you are in the mood.
Boschendal Chardonnay 2005 Western Cape, South Africa
A powerful, ripe expression of Chardonnay with lots of sweet melony, figgy fuit and a hint of vanilla and toast. Well judged oak and a bit of alcoholic heat (14.5%) help create a ripe wine that retains a sense of balance - just. Great value for money, though. Very good+ 88/100 (£6.99 Waitrose, on offer at £5.69)
Carmen Winemaker's Reserve Chardonnay 2003 Casablanca, Chile
Almost overpowering nose of ripe tropical fruits, vanilla, toast, spice and herbs. The palate is bold, buttery, rich and thick textured with fat, spicy, melony fruit. Quite complex and bold - really intense stuff. This won't be to everyone's taste, but it's incredibly richly flavoured. Very good/excellent 90/100 (reminds me a bit of the Montes Chardonnay commented on here a few days back)
