It's like a lemony custard dipped in butter. The buttery notes came out later after about an hour. Before that was mostly yellow and green fruits dominating. I'm really enjoying buttery Chards! Cheers!

The name says it all. I typically steer away from this style of Chards, but since they were being so forthright I figured I would give it a go. It was actually nice for what it was, and since its been so long since I've selected the big malo version it was sort of refreshing.

Butter. The kind of taste you get from taking a bite off a stick of butter. No citric notes. I'm not even sure there's any oak on it, it's just kind of oily. It's totally one-sided. Not my "glass of wine", but apparently people love it! Not sure why!?! I'd pay 8 bones for this. 15's way too high. Great label!

This is a great wine. It's indulgent on its own and true to its name (I love a vanilla-y/oaky/buttery Chardonnay). For me it's bit a more challenging to pair with a meal, so I usually go for this on it's own or something simple or drink it by itself.

I got a really green apple and apricot on the nose. Taste was soft and fruity paired well with our pizza date :)
