If this was $25 Chard, I would be disappointed, but this is under $12

Description: Deep straw in colour with a medium intense nose. This wine features light oak, lemon, dusty spiced oak, green & yellow apples, ginger, hazel & pine nuts and poached peach. Medium body with good acidity and a long length.

Negatives: None

Interesting Note: On a blind I would think this maybe a Fiano

Drink now or in the next couple of years on its own or pair it with seared chicken with caramelized onions and apples.

Tasted: 8 Aug 2015

For the price, you get a really solid, reasonably balanced chardonnay. Definitely a solid competitor at the price point.
