Southern Points Vineyards Chardonnay

Southern Points Chardonnay
Sweet apple and peach flavors in this wine with citrus highlights on the finish. I did also notice an abrupt gravel tinge at the end of the finish here that wasn't my favorite; this subsides after a few more sips. Not your typical butter/oaky chardonnay here and great for the summer time.

I was doubtful in this wine seeing that there is no year on the label, it's $7 price point, no description of anything on the back, and that fact that grapes were cobbled together from various vineyardS as noted on the front label. I'll give this a 6/10 as it exceeded my expectations. While I wouldn't purchase again (too sweet!) it did renew my faith in chardonnay wines.
