Lowest common denominator in flavor profile. Sweet pineapple juice in the middle. Butter bomb oak on the finish to dry it out enough to make it palatable.

Delightful buttery flavor with hints of banana and melon. Captivating to the last drop.

Not the biggest chardonnay fan, but this neutral oaked one is quite delicious. Pale yellow with a watery rim, nose full of tropical fruits like guava and pineapple for days. There's a bit of the neutral oak on the palate that adds a creamy creme brulee aspect to go along with the baked lemon and golden delicious apple flavors. For the price this goes for this is quite a surprise.

Plush, easy, yummy. Lots of dark berry and spice. Good texture without being overtly dry. I dig this wine.

What an odd nose 👃. Industrial lacquer and margarine. Palate is worse.

Not much of a scent; not much flavor

Would be good paired with really bold flavored meal
