Domaine D'or, for the one I adore? Nobody adores that crap.....

Tasting of wines from Chaberton Estate Winery, formerly known as Domaine Chaberton. They dropped the "Domaine" to stop getting confused with that Domaine D'or swill. Probably a good choice.

2011 Gew├╝rztraminer ($17.45)

A tiny hint of honey on the nose to go along with the tropical fruit that is typical for this varietal. Slightly off dry, a touch of lime and kiwi on the palate. 80.

2011 Chardonnay ($14.50)

Citrus and notes of pear on the nose; Unoaked, no real buttery notes, but hints of green apple and lemon on the palate. A nice value priced Chardonnay if you like your Chardonnay unoaked. 79.

2009 Canoe Cove Cabernet Sauvignon ($23.25)

Plum and vanilla, a hint of spice on the nose. Fruity mid-palate and a long finish. Drinking well now. 80.
