Domaine Naturaliste Discovery Margaret River Chardonnay, 2015

Astonishingly simplistic for a Margaret River white; sort of a taint on the brand.  I mean even without a Google what comes to mind? Leeuwin, Cullen, Vasse Felix…  Heavyweights all.  Think of it; expectations run high.  To open something so inconsequential and immediately forgettable is a bit like the difference between a spun sugar dome over sorbet at a Michelin starred restaurant and candy floss on the midway at a fair.

 

The citrus runs to grapefruit pith, the floral notes are thin, the refreshment factor blah.  A shocking disappointment.  BC Liquor discontinues Cape Mentelle but introduces this.  Shurely shome mishtake?

 

Price: $25 plus taxes at BC Liquor.

 

Market Liquidity: Runt of the litter (from purebred stock).
