Not my preference (this is (virtually) unoaked and almost Sauvignon Blanc like) but for under 10 euro excellent value for money — 9 months ago
Great nose. Heavy. Hint of oak finish. — 5 years ago
I recently conducted an experiment...Wine.com 10% off of $99, an offering that does not present very often.
All wines needed to score 90 or above by Wine Spectator..except for the Burn Cottage PN all bottles were less than $20. My purchase... five bottles in total.
1). Burn Cottage Moonlight Race 2015. WS 91..
Most expensive $42.
2). Novellum Chardonnay 92 by JD..this was
Included to make the $99.
3). Innocent Bystander PN 2017. 92 by WS.
...will keep you posted on other two.
This wine is great for sub $20...blueberry...cherry..tea leaves.a soft herbal component and dried flowers or sage. This definitely beat the Burn Cottage in terms of complexity!

If you are looking for a really good inexpensive Chardonnay, as Val Kilmer said in role as Doc Holiday in the movie “Tombstone”, “ I’m (Novellum) your Huckleberry.” This is around $10-$12 depending on where you buy it.
On the nose, cream, kiwi, white peach, lemon, lime, Bosc pear, orange citrus, green apple, butter, vanilla, honey notes, soft, light spice, chalky volcanic minerals, jasmine, spring flowers and white & yellow lilies.
The body is full, creamy and waxy. Beeswax/honeycomb, cream, kiwi, white peach, lemon, lime, Bosc pear, orange citrus, green apple, pineapple, butter, vanilla, soft, light sharp spice with a touch of heat, chalky volcanic minerals, jasmine, spring flowers and white & yellow lilies. Round beautiful acidity and a long, Rich, full, delicious, well balanced finish. A steal for $10-$12.

The Novellum is fermented in tank, 30% aged in French oak with the remainder in tank on the lees of Viognier. Average age of the vines are 30 years and are farmed organically.

Trying out all the highly rated $10.00-$20.00 whites to guzzle during the summer heat & Beach bike rides. This is a wine advocate 91 for $15.00
1. Novellum,ridiculous for $10.00
3. This one
4. Matias Santa Lucia Highlands
But basically splitting hairs on all of them,
Matias is the most complex. — 8 months ago
