This crisp morning reminds me that pretty soon I’ll be switching over to some red wine reviews. You know how some people chose their wine based on what they are eating? Well, I sometimes do, but for me it’s mostly seasonal. Summer and spring means white, and fall and winter means red.
Happy Camper, Chardonnay, 2007, California. $7.99. I will be the first to admit that I bought this wine solely on it’s name alone. Give me a cute name or a cute label and into my wine basket you go. Unfortunately that methodology doesn’t always equal success. This had a pleasant butterscotchy flavor and a full mouthfeel, however their was nothing special about it. Buy again – no.
Oak Grove Chardonnay, California, 2007. $7.99. They say – Tropical fruit flavors, followed by a smooth, creamy finish. Notes of vanilla and toasty oak. We say – fruity front, smooth and ends buttery. Buy again – definitely!
Gharly Head Chardonnay, 2006. $10.99. They say – bright tropical flavors of pineapple and citrus followed by a zingy ginger accent and hints of toasted graham cracker and vanilla on a creamy finish. We say – creamy, citrusy, but mellow. Excellent!! Buy again – definitely!!!
