abc…anything but chardonnay

Over the last couple of months, we’ve been chatting about Chardonnay and you’ve told me what you like and don’t like about the ones you’ve tasted.  The common thread in many of these conversations:  The big butterball style chardonnay is so last season.

So you can imagine my excitement when this sweetheart of a bottle appeared on my radar.   David Bruce Chardonnay – bright fruit and very little oak with flavors of lemon, apple, mango, bright acidity, minerals, creamed peaches and vanilla bean.  And I’m happy to report no butterball in site.

David Bruce Chardonnay is here exclusively for you.  And when I say exclusively for you, I mean Vine & Table is the only one carrying it. Yep, that is so this season.

Oh, I almost forgot:  It’s the lowest price in the Midwest at $14.49 per bottle.  Hope you were sitting down for that one. ~ Bethann

    I think it’s just a new trend. While in Somona, we heard it too. Apparently, all of the winemakers thought it would be a great idea to use steel instead of oak. Personally, I like butter and it’s something that differentiates chards from the other varietals. I’m sure those wines are good but I think butter and oak still have a following. I’ll probably go for a nice sauv blanc instead.
