| ||Tasted by DrinkNectar on 4/29/2010 & rated 86 points: •The Stuff: 100% Chardonnay from various vineyards in the California Central Coast. Partially 35% barrel fermented, cold fermented, and barrel aged. 13.5%abv; 40,000 cases made|
•The Swirl: Very pale straw color, much lighter than a traditional Chardonnay. Swirl does indicate some thickness to the wine. Clean and clear
•The Sniff: Not a lot happening on the nose. There are some nice plays of pear, subtle hints of tropics, and a slight mineral aroma that throws it off just a bit (not much).
•The Sip: Pleasing on the mouth-feel. Surprisingly nice for coming out of a box. In a blind tasting I would certainly put this on par with some $12 Chardonnay I’ve recently had. The subtle tropics continue on the palate with a tad citrus lemon. The acidity seems slightly off balanced on the finish.
•The Score: At the equivalent of $6 per bottle ($24 per Octavin), I can easily score this a 3 and offer it as a recommended wine for summer BBQ parties or camping adventures. (1775 views)
| ||Tasted by drdebs on 3/26/2010 & rated 87 points: One of the best boxed wines I've had, this chardonnay had buttered apple aromas and flavors with a bit of lemon. Not too oaky, not to acidic--not to distinctive, but the price is right and if you are looking for a party wine this would be a good choice. Comes in 3 L box with twist spout, and comes to about $7.50 a bottle. (1737 views)|
