Pure Evil Chardonnay 2007
Wines is a new company founded by importer and marketing genius, Dan Philips, along with co-owner, renowned winemaker, Chris Ringland. Winemakers for R Wines are Chris Ringland, Lisa Wetherell, Andrew Hercock, and John Hughes. It encompasses four familiar labels, Marquis Philips, 3 Rings, Roogle, and Bitch, along with 13 others created especially for R Wines. Needless to say, the packaging of these wines is amazingly creative but, more importantly, what is in the bottle consistently over-delivers from low-end to high-end.The 2005 Pure Evil Chardonnay spent some time in French oak. It is light gold-colored with an attractive perfume of butterscotch, spice box, baked apple, and poached pear, more like the nose of a wine three times the price. Medium-bodied, it delivers intense, ripe, spicy flavors buttressed by good acidity and a long finish. This is an awesome value in Chardonnay
I hate tart, dry, acidic wines that your palate so hard that it puckers your whole body down to your butt! That being said, this is one of the only Chardonnay that I will actually drink. It is light and crisp without being tart. There is welcome citris and ripe fruit, but no overbearing sugar. This is an every day drinkable wine for self or with guests.
External Reviews for Pure Evil Chardonnay
So good it\'s wrong? We aren\'t sure, but this fun label still means really good wine.
Light yellow gold in the glass. Fresh aromas; bright tropical fruits. Very lively and rich with an underscoring of oak. Tropical on the palate as well with some sweet cantaloupe and lemon kicking in. Good acidity makes this an easy wine for foods as well as an aperitif. Pineapple and yellow pears lead to a crisp clean finish. Mike Supple.
