Charles Shaw Chardonnay California 2006

Member Review by Nicole Ramsey:

I'm not really fond of Chardonnay, but after hearing about this, I decided to give it a try. I'm really impressed with the quality for the price, it's light but flavorful. No nose, but acidic, pleasantly sour flavor. A somewhat buttery mouthfeel. I would pair this with chicken, white cheese, olives, sweet fruit. A very nice everyday very inexpensive wine.

Almost as good as in 2005. A acidic spritz to start. Less fruit in the nose, slightly funky actually. Ok finish with some oak.

Intriguing nose of pineapples, bananas and and lychee's. Crisp attack followed by some sipcyness from the oak. Very pleasant and very easy drinking. Green apples on a crisp finish. I tried to rate it lower, but this is what its worth. Excellent QPR

Good cheap wine but too sweet for me. Need to chill very much.
