680News wine reviews – January 29–31, 2010 

Penfolds Thomas Hyland Chardonnay 2007
Australian Cardonnays tend to be overly buxom for my palate but recently I tasted one that had a lot of elegance and charm. It was Penfolds Thomas Hyland Chardonnay 2007 from the Adelaide region. The bouquet of apples, citrus fruit and vanilla oak expands on the palate to flavours of apple and crème brulee with a Macadamia nut finish. It's full-bodied and well balanced. It costs $19.95 at Vintages outlets. Try it with grilled salmon or boiled lobster. That's Penfolds Thomas Hyland Chardonnay 2007 at Vintages. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler. ($19.95, Vintages #611228)

Lake Valence Oak Aged Chardonnay 2007
We don't often see wines from Hungary at Vintages but here's one you shouldn't miss. Lake Valence Oak-Aged Chardonnay is a genuine bargain at $10.95 but you'll have to visit a Vintages store to get it. The nose is minerally with toasty, spicy, apple notes. It's medium-bodied, dry with flavours of orange and green apple, very well made with good length. Try it with seafood pasta or roast chicken. That's Lake Valence Oak Aged Chardonnay 2007 from Hungary at Vintages outlets. If you missed the name, go to 680News.com and click on my link. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler. ($10.95, Vintages #145243)
