Citrus/lime with green apple. I'll be saving the remainder for cooking.

Real bite on the finish in an unpleasant way. Received good rating from WE but not for me.

I love Kendall-Jackson. Not bad for a summer white wine.

I like it better than the VR chard. Crisp and fruit forward but still smooth and rounded. Pineapple, green apple, and pears with a modest acidity and a solid finish.

Golden straw color, aromas of Granny Smith apples, lemon and soft minerals. Crisp, clean and refreshing- great citrus flavors, no oaky or buttery flavors- clean Chardonnay. I love it.

Light, crisp. Started to taste a little more buttery/oaky after 3 days in the fridge

Refreshing, but lacking a little in flavor. Used part of it for cooking and was not impressed with its performance compared with other wines used for same recipe. As for drinking, I'd probably try many other Chardonnay's before revisiting this one.
