I've tried all types and ages of the Chard's. This is a great wine for the price. Try it both room temp and chilled. I give it a B+
One of the best out there for the money and just happens to be a Total Wine best seller. That alone speaks volumes.
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!!
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.

The best Chardonnays in the world continue to arrive from the region where the grape first emerged: the chalk, clay, and limestone vineyards of Burgundy and Chablis. While the origins of the grape were disputed for many years, with some speculating that the grape came all the way from the Middle East, DNA researchers at the University of California-Davis proved in 1999 that Chardonnay actually developed...
