He said: Clear, light yellow/green color. Fresh citrus bouquet. Crisp, tart mellon taste with a heavy earthy medium-long finish. No oak or vanilla, but it’s a refreshing Chardonnay and at $4.99 it’s a recommended buy.
She said: Slightly acidic citrus and melon bouquet. Medium bodied, crisp, smooth taste with a slightly bitter taste at the end of the finish. No vanilla or oak, but at $4.99 its a bargain. It was deadly after a chocolate chip cookie.
Comments: A sweet desert turned the crisp taste into an unpleasant harshness.
