External Reviews for Mcmanis Family Vineyards Chardonnay California
With its easy flavors of apples and peaches and a touch of spicy oak, this everyday Chard is a pretty good buy. It's soft, but that fruit is ripe and pretty.
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.
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.
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!
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.
Great price for a Chardonnay this rich and tasty. It has a buttery, creamy texture, framing tart flavors of pineapples, peaches and vanilla oak.
Zesty, rich and mouth filling, the 2003 McManis Chardonnay certainly approaches the condition of a "steal." Displaying abundant quantities of peach and lemon custard over the base of vanilla-laden, toasty almond-scented oakiness. A delicious, balanced example of this style from an impressive up-and-coming winery.
