if you are not a fan of heavily oaked chardonnay's, this is for you. this chard is from spain and sells for the nice price of about $9. stainless fermentation means no oak and plenty of fruit that you don't get with many of those big oaked california chards. the nose has lots of melon and floral aromas. the palate is fresh lemon and green apples, followed by some nice mineral notes and melon in the finish. very refreshing, warm weather wine that is great alone as a patio drink or with lighter summer foods.
