Thistle Dew Chardonnay-Verdelho–Weekend Wine Reviews #68

Thistle dew

Thistle Dew Chardonnay-Verdelho, Australia, 2009, $6.99 at Cost Plus World Market.  They say:  This wine presents bright aromas of melon, orange and cherry blossoms with a delicate hint of vanilla leading to savory fruit flavors that balance perfectly on the palate.  We say:  light, a bit of melon, a touch of citrus, not very full flavored, not much to it.  Buy again:  hubby was not too crazy about it, but I liked it.   So, it’s up to you.  Whose opinion do you value most.  I know you’ll make the right decision :)

Looks good. Friday night I tried Lucky duck chardonnay and it was pretty good. I don't normally like chardonnay. Another one that's pretty good in the hot summer is flip flop chardonnay. Both of these are dirt cheap.

Of course. . . I'd step off a curb on your word alone.

Sometimes a light white is just what a summer evening demands :)

A glass for me please Pam. I hope it's chilled :)

I love the name! I am not a Chardonnay fan but when I get one that is buttery and not oaky... I am in love!

sometimes i like a light, citrusy wine--especially in the summer. i'll go with you on this one.

Can't say I'm too keen on all that citrus flavour. Like grass even less. Nice label.
