The Big Kahuna NV chardonnay (Spain)

Tasted at 54-60 degrees on the IR temp gun. Color: buttery side of straw. Nose: soft melon, peach. Mouthfeel: thin. Tail trail: 6 seconds. Flavors: green apple, pear, lemon, nectarines. Food pairing: baked chicken–surprisingly decent.

This is not “ripe, buttery chardonnay.” “Serve chilled”… yes, very chilled. If you run a surfer bar, this is your cash-cow wine.

Alcohol: 11.5%. Product of Spain. Found only at Fresh & Easy Neighborhood Market in California. Stelvin cap. Power: 1/5. Balance: 2/5. Depth: 2/5. Finesse: 0/5. Rated: 85. A gift from an individual not affiliated with the winery or market. One of the surprises in a blinder, if you want to call it that as this is one of the better bottom-shelf wines I’ve tasted in a long time. Take that however you want. This is WAwineman… uncorked, uneducated but not uncouth.
