Very little oak on the nose and palate, which is just what I like with my chardonnays. Nice golden color with notes of green apple, pineapple and plantains on the nose as well as a yeasty lees characteristic on the palate. Ever drinkable with a roundness to it.

Have you been looking for a sub $15 Chard that satisfies all your needs? If so, then this is your wine. Nice buttery wine that would go well with a Brie or Camembert. Apples and melons with just the right amount of acid. Must buy.

Banana peel, clove, stewed apple, buttery crust and baking spice. Palate shows more apple and banana pie. Good luck pairing this with dinner - dessert all the way.

Straw colored in the glass. Butter and Apple on the nose. Medium body on the palette. Highly acidic on the finish. Nice long finish as well. Not a heavy Chard which is the way I like it.

Great Chardonnay. Less buttery, more crisp acidity.

For a sub-$15 wine this is a solid Reisling
