Cool new twist off cap! Really fresh & vibrant; more pear notes than the usual apple notes in Chardonnay; tropical fruit chimes in on the full-bodied finish. 90 points.

An excellent value for McManis, this 2005 Chardonnay reveals pretty pineapple and other tropical fruit characteristics in its medium-bodied, fruit-forward, unpretentious style. It is ideal for drinking over the next year.

A little soft and dull, but with enough Chard-like character to satisfy diehard fans who don't want to spend a lot. Has apple, peach and pear flavors with a candied taste of oak.

Rich in apricot, peach and pineapple flavors that finish a little sweet and oaky. This is the kind of inexpensive Chardonnay that California so effortlessly produces, all to the benefit of consumers.

Peach and tropical fruit flavors highlight this soft wine, with oaky notes. It has a creamy texture and finishes dry.

An ambrosia of banana, mango, vanilla and butterscotch aromatics swirl in the glass as voluptuous fruit lays on the palate, all the while maintaining its integrity with an underlying current of citric acidity that culminates in a long lemon custard finish.

Light and lively on the tongue, loaded with bright tropical fruit flavors - mango, banana and melon - but with a slightly creamy texture to smooth out the mouthfeel. Very easy to drink; soon to be your new everyday favorite!

Great price for a Chardonnay this rich and tasty. It has a buttery, creamy texture, framing tart flavors of pineapples, peaches and vanilla oak.
