Nice every day Chardonnay. Nice balance of oaky butter and fruit.

Almost as enjoyable as Rombauer at 1/3 the cost.

Bursting with fresh apples and pear then wraps up with some beautiful oak. Slightly buttery with clove, butterscotch and crème brûlée. Lovely, smooth and bright!

Drinks a bit warm, so a little unbalanced. A hint of butter, a citrus peel finish. It's good, but you can tell it's new world.

The quality is for sure above average, but really nothing to highlight specifically. Yet at age 13 you are an idiot if you don't realise that ALL resting a ever given to this wine previously were wrong. And that sort of cool!
