2006 Liberty School Chardonnay

2006 Liberty School Chardonnay Wine
Hailing from the brown hills of the Central Coast (Paso Robles), CA, this grocery store purchase left me with a smile. $9.99 at the Harris Teeter; a quick pick up from an end cap display. Surprisingly a high 7/10 rating - an excellent purchase of an inexpensive chardonnay.

Bright and apple-y. Some pear and possibly pinnapple. Very close to the Sauvignon Blanc family with it's tropical, fruit forward flavors, but the finish is sweet and vibrant (not dry). A bit of oak on the finish as well. A great summer wine, espeically for the Memorial Day or 4th of July weekend with a name like Liberty.
