I picked this up only because I needed one more bottle at the check out line to get a $40 discount on my purchases that day. It is ok for a Chardonnay I suppose, but it is not worth $40 ;)
External Reviews for Coastline Chardonnay Monterey
Lightly oaked with hints of vanilla, but mostly the bold tropical notes are dominant. Medium-bodied, smooth texture. Lots of mango and banana notes.
Our Chardonnay was fermented cool in stainless steel tanks. Some exposure to oak gives the wine just a hint of butterscotch aromas that complement the ripe apple and pear notes on the nose. On the palate, bright pear and apple flavors are restrained by a hint of toasty oak, good minerality and a crisp, clean finish.
