It's good to encounter a midpriced chardonnay that doesn't galumph across the palate in oaken boots. This white wine is breezy, crisp and cool - with lively flavors of citrus fruit, apples and minerals. It's not overblown in any way, and its generous acidity makes it especially food-friendly. This is not a backdoor way of saying it's neutral or bland. There's plenty of subtle charm here.
