He said: Served chilled. light gold color. Light fresh fruit aromas. Creamy, apple and and pear, hints of citrus fruit, with quite strong oak taste. Somewhat crisp, fairly short finish. Nothing complex and not great; but an OK inexpensive Chardonnay. As it warmed up there was more than a hint of stainless steel. At this price I would buy several other Chardonnays before I would pick this one.
She said: We had this as sipping wine so the selection of food was limited. With its medium oak bouquet and flavor it was delicious with a mild creamy white cheddar but not so good with a sharp cheddar. There was an odd under taste in the finish that was masked by the cheese so it improved the overall tasting. Medium bodied and medium dry this wine is tasty and an OK buy at about $10.00.
