Yellow Tail Chardonnay 2006

Date March 28, 2008 | Chuck | Australia & Chardonnay & White Wine

This is my second yellow tail review and I've noticed something similar, these wines don't follow the typical varietal characteristics at all. Both the merlot and this chardonnay tasted too sweet and over manipulated.
It's not a big surprise to me, they say it on the label 'the nose leaps from the glass and displays a peachy, vanilla and coconut aroma'. The first two are fine, I can deal with them. But the coconut triggers something in me that says "don't drink suntan lotion"

Mount Riley Chardonnay 2005

Date March 15, 2008 | Chuck | Chardonnay & New Zealand & White Wine

My second chardonnay review from Marlborough, New Zealand ( first was Oyster Bay ) and already I've found a common bond, a high price tag.
This wine was quite nice and had nothing at all wrong with it, but it certainly lost points in the value area. Chardonnay is not a tough wine to make and there is plenty of it, and the majority under $18.90. You have to dress to impress to charge that much in this category.
