I tasted this little value Chardonnay last week and loved it! That simple! The wines are part of a sort of co-op project – each varietal coming from a different region. They are meant to be inexpensive, fun, solid value wines. I got to taste the line up and while there were a few nice options, the Chardonnay was what jumped out at me as the best quality for the money.

The labels are fun and quirky but it’s what is inside the bottle that counts. This is a great option for those that love a lighter style of Chardonnay – lots of bright, crisp, juicy fruit on the palate (think crisp green apple, melon, some lemon zest) – but with a softer, rounder finish. Just a hint of oak gives it that bit of vanilla and creaminess which is nice. I believe  the fruit is sourced from southern France.

Really solid Chard for $10 – great find for our Values Under $15 Fixture!
