Unoaked, aged in stainless. Partial malo. Light tropical nose of pineapple, kiwi. Very nice fruit in the palette, especially for $$. Crisp lemon, lemon peel, pear, light steel/mineral crispness, then quick finish.
(13.5%) Pineapple, tropical, citrus almost a bit creamy before a nice crisp finish. Clean fruit, very nice. Interestingly I always seem to find more enjoyment in these value ($8 here) driven offering than those of their higher price tag bearing brethren. More money equals more new oak which is not a good thing from my perspective. Okay dismounting pulpit now but feel free to enjoy amongst yourself in the meantime...
Bought Because: In supermarket, previous good experiences with winery Wine Geek Notes: Twist-off, aged in stainless steel
Interesting story... We were enjoying this humming bird Chardonnay on the deck, bottle in the middle of the table with, of all things, a glass hummingbird stopper we received as a gift from a great couple, Deb and Louis. As many lovely surprises come in threes, as we sipped on the deck, a female Ruby-Throated Hummingbird flew up and hovered, beak-to-beak with the hummingbird stopper on our Clos la Chance Hummingbird Chardonnay. Three or four seconds was all it lasted, but what a fascinating nexus of loveliness.
