This buxom chardonnay drinks to a different drummer. It pours very deep yellow gold. The nose is huge with all kinds...

I really liked this wine when I had it in the summer of 2012. A very good, big and buttery chard. But I had a couple more bottles in my cellar. I opened one (Oct 2014) and it was very spritzy, and had a sour apple character. I thought it was just bottle variation, so opened the other. It was the same! don't know what happened, but they seem to have started fermenting in the bottle maybe?
too bad. luckily I found my receipt from the LCBO from 2012 and the LCBO gave me a full refund!
