Luca UCO Valley-Mendoza-Argentina 2007 Chardonnay, $20.47-$27.99, 88 points, was a copper/gold color trending lemon yellow toward the glass shallows.
The nose was a rather bland melon almost white musk aroma with a subdued floral component.
Medium to medium-plus body with fair acidity carried subtle flavors of vanilla, caramel, pome fruit and melon rind.
Finished fair with a big 14.5% alcohol, black pepper, lemon oil, and cantaloupe.
There wasn't anything that I would describe as a dominant feature except the attribute of being pleasantly neutral (some may say balanced).
Paired well with my sweet potato and Korean chicken.
