Wine Tasting Note: HRM Rex-Goliath "Giant 47 Pound Rooster" Chardonnay, 2003, Central Coast, California.
Threshers £7.99.
They sell this for £7.99 - pricey for a single bottle but as part of the buy 3 deal it works out fine. Its a toasty wine - very toasty on the finish from the oak aging. The palate is full of tropical fruit flavours underpinning that oak - papaya and pear. Touches of creamy pineapple too and a hint of aniseed on the finish. Quite rich and full.
Scribblings Rating - 88/100

Rex-Goliath website doesn't give much in the way of specifics but they recommend this with Fettuccine Alfredo or Saffron Risotto.

Coincidentally WineCast has just blogged about a Rex-Goliath wine the non-vintage Merlot.

Yes, looks like we have both been on the HRM Rex Goliath trail of late. Aside from the NV Merlot I blogged last night, I also took on their NV Pinot Noir a couple of weeks ago and found it to be much superior. Ill taste through their range and blog or podcast about them soon.

Cheers, Andrew.
