Novy 2010 Rosella's Vineyard Chardonnay (Santa Lucia Highlands)

Honey-rich sweetness marks this Chardonnay, which is almost like a dessert wine. The sweet taste comes from the tangerine and apricot fruit, which may have a little residual sugar, from the glycerine of alcohol, and from the caramelized sweetness and buttered toast of oak barrels. Malolactic fermentation might also be involved. Everything else is fine, but the wine would earn a higher score if it were drier.
