Weekly Wine – Chilean Chardonnay

8 Feb

sc_charSanta Carolina Chardonnay
2016
Chile
750ml
13% ABV
$9.45 (LCBO)
This wine disturbed me a bit.
It is dry yet it does not seem so when taking the first sips.
It is quite light in colour but the body does match that visual stimuli.
There is acidity here that is not too pronounced but it is tempered with other flavours that I can’t quite make out.
It is a fair wine. It is a chardonnay, and it is a rather typical one at that. When drinking this wine there is no mistaking it for something that is low on the totem pole of price.
BUT.
It is rather high on the totem pole of value.
If you like chardonnay and are on a budget – you won’t go wrong with this one.
