Taste/Description: I enjoyed my drinking experience with Smoking Loon’s Rose so I grabbed this bottle from @totalwinesandmore.
Aged in stainless steel, this wine is refreshing but silky on the palate with fruit notes of pineapple, green apple and lemon. I enjoy unoaked chardonnay because they are lighter in mouth feel versus the oak finish you get with corked chardonnays. Overall, this was a pleasant experience.
