This is a label created by golfer Ben Curtis and Rich Parducci. The wines are meant to be affordable (full retail is about $20). This Chardonnay was made in steel and uses no oak. Screw capped. Golden in color, with a bit of a copper hue. The nose is tight but with some air, it opens to show lemon balm, lemon grass, and just a hint of LemonHeads candy. On the palate, the texture is slightly oily. There is an interesting chalkiness to it and the lemon balm comes thru. It is steely and easy drinking. This drinks well on its own. Very refreshing. It has enough acidity to work well with lighter foods or sea food. It probably is best drunk over the next few years. A very nice value.
