- Light gold color with medium forming legs and aromas of cut green grass, tea and apricot. It's lacking fruit and has flavours of butterscotch, vanilla and alcohol with a light/medium body. Smooth texture with a medium finish - It's ok. Fairly light, not very extraordinary at all, but tastes ok. Likely won't buy it again. But it is palatable.
Possibly the best way to start describing this wine, is mentioning the things we don't taste. Almost every time I pick up a glass of Chardonnay my mind prepares for any of a number of aromas and flavors that might make it unpleasant, or even undrinkable. That does not happen here. I disagree with some of the reviews that mention oak, there is little or none here. There is none of that over ripe fruit that brings mango, guava, and sometimes banana. There is not a hint of green apple acidity. It does not have a heavy viscosity, in fact it is medium bodied. What we do have here is a stylishly lean, delicately simple, focused white wine with a beautiful pronounced minerality that is incredibly balanced and easy to drink. True, it is not going to overpower you, but for 12 bucks do you expect it to? Nice clean lemony and peachy fruit. Civilized acidity. Soft finish. Very nice.
