2021 Stel + Mar Premium Chardonnay, USA, California, Lodi, Wine Review
This is a relatively new release. It is an inexpensive ($14), easy to drink Chardonnay that is a great choice for parties and events. Pale green/gold in color, clear and bright. The nose has hay, slight spice, slight grapefruit, and some green apple. Medium bodied. Low acidity. On the palate, there is some minerality. An interesting lanolin note, along with spice and slight butterscotch. A bit more lime returns for the finish. This is the kind of wine that works well with a diverse crowd. It drinks well on its own. Attractive packaging.
