It’s time once again for another installment of cheap wine reviews. You all kind of seem to like my reviews, so I guess I’ll just have to keep on drinking the wine. Hey, it’s a tough job, but you know what they say about tough jobs.
Muirwood Chardonnay 2008, Arroyo Seco California. $9.99. Fruity and buttery. Excellent! Buy again: definitely.
Avondale Chardonnay 2006, South Africa. $11.00 They say: Big on the palate, crisp almost Sauvignon Blanc-like characteristics. We say – yes, it doesn’t really taste like a chardonnay, but it doesn’t really taste like a Sauvignon Blanc either. It’s pleasant, but nothing special. Buy again: probably not.
Anakena Chile Suvignon Blanc, 2008. $7.99. They say: a crisp pale gold Sauvignon Blanc with fresh gooseberry and wild blossom aromas. Bursting with ripe fruit and freshness it has a lively style with a delightful finish. We say: smooth and light. The aroma promises a full flavor that the wine does not deliver. However it’s a very pleasant, light, summer wine. Buy again: probably at this price!
Bodega Septima, 2007 Chardonnay, Argentina. $8.80. They say: a fresh and fruity wine with complex aromas of green apples and notes of pineapple and banana. We say: citrusy, Sauvignon Blanc-ish, buttery finish. Buy again: Yes!
There you have it! Let me know if you try any of these and if you like them or not! Feel free to disagree with me, to each his own and all that!
