My current favorite #chardonnay, cross between a mineral infused white burgundy and a lightly oaked buttery Santa Barbara Chardonnay. Medium body with good mouthfeel and weight, nice tight green apple finish

Really aggressively oaked. Probably popular and decently priced for that style of wine.

Tastes like orange creamsicle and pineapple. So it's good...If you're into that kinda thing.

Banana, pineapple, and very young. Can see this developing a very nice creamy texture as it ages

Rich bouquet with butter, mango, cucumber, orange, nougat. Zesty notes on the palate. Good and rewarding acidity. Great with seafood!

Very surprised at this wine. Enjoyed it very much. It overly dry, with a nice balance and finish. Would definitely buy again at this price point.

2018 bottle has a smaller label but the bottle itself is embossed with the Michael David name.
I prefer their Freakshow Chardonnay because it's less oaky, but that's just personal preference.
A beautiful example of classically delicious Chardonnay
