Trefethen & Greg Norman 2009 Cardonnays

Trefethen and Greg Norman 2009 Chardonnays,  though one is from California and one from Australia they are remarkably alike, but they are separated primarily by just how dry the Greg Norman is. 
The color of both is clear and lightly lemon/lime, the aroma is quiet or tame without striking notes. However the finish is different:

Trefethen Oak Knoll Napa Valley Family Vineyard 2009 Chardonnay, $25.49-$34.99, 90 points, finishes with a lovely long and warm vanilla spiciness with hints of peaches and cream.

Greg Norman 2009 Cardonnay Eden Valley Australia, $12.74-$14.99, 89 points, finishes long with a hint of spearmint, menthol, and spice.
Both are nice Chardonnay wines, but QPR goes to the Aussie, unless a noticeably dry wine is not your cup of tea.
