not bad not great, unoaked, not buttery
nice bright acidity. this can be paired with shrimp cocktail or just quaffed. it's got the zest that seems like sparkling but it ain't. killer. and at $8 it's a steal. definitely on the sweet side.

Elegant and approachable, this Chardonnay has appealing lemon and lime flavors, with hints of vanilla. Delicate peach nuances linger on the crisp, dry finish.

A medium-bodied Chardonnay with a pale golden color, fruity aromas, and floral honey notes to round out the apple and lemon-lime flavors. With its creamy texture, this would be perfect with a dish like shrimp étouffée.
