Due to warm terroir and extreme diurnal shifts, even a Cupcake Chardonnay can be rich and fruity, with balancing acidity rarely sourced from elsewhere. Yellow apple, baked pear, ripe meyer lemon and apricot, pineapple and mango. White flowers, honeysuckle. Buttery, low earth, toffee, vanilla, toast and pie crust.
Quite quaffable. Quite.

Flavors of butter cream, citrus, and vanilla with hints of oak and subtle spice. 13.5% Alc.

Crisp, a little rounded but still bright. Slight aroma of damp towels. A lot of different flavors, citrus, vanilla, spices I can't place and a fruit I can't place. Apricot? Became very buttery as it warmed up.

For bulk wine, good. Good enough to be the Chardonnay you have strapped by dumpsters in the alley outside of work, while others are on their cigarette break. I'd always gladly refer back to this Chard w/o to much worry about self-preservation.

A favorite every day Chardonnay, good value with creamy, rich vanilla and buttery flavours and a nice touch of oak.

The name always stops me from buying this one, but it's pretty good.

would pair well with crab cakes. there is a very distinct butter cream flavor and aroma but the citrus lightens it out so it is not too heavy. Not my first choice for a Chardonnay but good for a cheap wine
