Lazanou Organic Vineyards Chardonnay 2007 and Chenin Blanc 2007

2007 Lazanou Organic Wellington Chardonnay 72+ Points

Brilliant, bright, scintillating superb clarity and color for a chardonnay, discreet nose, austere, straw like character, suggesting sun burned and stressed fruit.

Crisp, uncomplex, lacking palate definition and chardonnay fruit, structure and charm, thin, lean, acidity out of balance, now until 2010

2007 Lazanou Organic Wellington Chenin Single Vineyard 80 Points

Ripe citrus peel / zest / oil, sun ripe golden delicious apples aromas, simple uncomplex palate, some ripe fruit character, follows through, but lacking charm and concentration, dusty oak character slightly disturbing, now until 2012+
