Hess Select Monterey Chard 2005

Member Review by winolee:

Not really into the whites, so take this comment with a grain of salt. The bouquet is really fragrant with a vanilla and tropical fruity scents. The butterscotch sweetness really surprised me - was expecting a drier wine, so I had my octopus and porkchops out and ready to pair with it. Did not really go well with it. For me, this had summer written all over it. Grapefruit tastes towards the end, kinda hits you abruptly. Oh, and drink it while its chilled. I had my glass sit out longer than I should've and just got all grapefruit by then. Kinda indifferent about it, give me a nice red anytime.
