    August 10, 2019 - Drank and enjoyed this Chardonnay from magnum with friends last night. Drinking quite well and a great pairing with the shrimp in a shallot white wine sauce we made.

    June 17, 2017 - Served with broiled cod, braised carrots/mushrooms, basmati rice. Quite nice combination of light lemon/lime, pineapple, honeysuckle, very light caramel/vanilla/corn, ample acidity to keep all in balance. Medium body, moderately long finish. Did not evolve much nor obtain great depth, but drinks nicely and stays interesting.

  • kmforster Does not like this wine: 60 points

    June 7, 2017 - Total swill with an odd taste - not corked, just disgusting. Possibly coked? Even so, ugh.

    June 1, 2017 - clean mineral. lime peel, nice body and a little oily. I agree w/ Ben Christianson's corn note. I preferred the 2014 for its freshness

    April 6, 2017 - Pale gold. This thing does smell like ripe california chardonnay. There is some muted tropical yellow and orange fruit as well as smoky lees. Lots of good punch in the mouth with the smokey and spicy notes dominating. There is some iodine/butterscotch at the end which I am actually totally digging. I really like this. $19. Thumbs way up. I'll be back (maybe not with the austrian accent).
