Better than the 2012, with pear and hazelnut aromas. Pleasant mouthfeel with crisp apple and tropical fruit flavors. Great weeknight wine.

Consistently good creamy flavors with apples and pear. Fast becoming my go-to weekday white. Paired with pepper garlic marinated sous vide cod. Yum.

Nice. Citrus and apple flavors. Malo gives it a smooth mouthfeel and lingering finish. Not bad for $12.

Monday night and sampling a 2012 Joel Gott Chardonnay. I picked this up at $14.99. The color is a very light yellow but pleasing to the eye. It looks as though it uses grapes from Sonoma, Napa, and Monterey Counties. This is an unpacked Chard which I tend to like. The nose is has nice tropical fruit, papaya, pineapple, and melon. I can also pick up hints of honeysuckle and a bit of vanilla. The palate gives us stone fruit, apple and citrus notes. This wine has clean bright acid and a nice minerality. At this price point not a bad Chard at all.
