the best selling chardonnay in Montgomery Co.!
this wine is billed as the "best selling chardonannay in Mont. Co." by my local Mont. Co. wine store! I call it my "house wine". It's oaky, consistent, and affordable. I love it! My rich Mo.Co.friends serve it at their house parties so it can't be that bad!!
a good default
I default to this wine when I cannot find another - usually there are others that I prefer, but when I'm in a pinch I grab Yellow Tail to fill in the gap. It's not the greatest, but it isn't the worst I've had either. I agree, it is definitely one of the heavier chardonnays I have had and, when I'm thinking about a chard, I'm thinking light; however, this one is "okay."
not as grassy as most, smooth, white grape, citrus
Come on, it's not THAT bad
Seems like a lot of people don't care for this wine but I'm not sure that's justified. For an unoaked Chard it's decent and surprisingly refreshing. I found it to be light with a crispy citrus flavor. The one element I found to be it's shortcoming was its dry and short finish. For $6.00 a bottle it's a bargain. It's not an elegant Chardonnay but it's not swill either. Perfect for a beach day.
more than subtle on the oak
I like this ok, but i taste oak, or at least, what I consider to be oak. At any rate, it's heavier, fuller, than other whites in this price range. It's consistent, and at least when I want a cheap glass of wine at a restaurant, this is widely available.
I did not enjoy this one at all. I hate to waste a bottle but this left an after taste. Never again will this be stored on my wine rack.
a little too many tannins, somewhat bitter after taste. Austrailan chards tend to be this way. It's not horrible, just a bit too intense - may overpower foods.
For the price, it's an adequate chardonnay. Better than box wines.
Tastes just like a $6.00 bottle of Chardonnay
An associate bought this wine and came to my house for drinks after a hard day of work. I was ready for a glass of wine and with a big smile on my face as we talked and she poured the wine.
My first sip my whole facial expression change she said you don't like it. I was like no this is awful. She encouraged me to take about 2 more sips. It was just awful to me I end up having ice tea. LOL afterwards she stated that most of our other co workers didn't like it either.

I fully concur that this wine is just flat terrible with NO redeeming qualities whatsoever. Too many better alternatives at this "QPR."
Next time...try Rubbing Alcohol
I was encouraged to try this wine from a friend. I usually enjoy Australian chardonnay's, but this one was nothing short of terrible. It was very bitter and definetely tasted cheap. I would like to think rubbing alcohol must taste better.
