Root 1 Chardonnay 2008

Price: around $9.00

Color: Pale yellow

Nose: Citrus fruit, nectarine, peach, strawberries.  A real beauty of a bouquet here.

Taste: This is a well balanced wine.  Thin bodied with a very smooth finish. Light mineral notes and just the right amount of tanginess that I like in whites.

Summary: Finally, a young Chilean chardonnay that strides well between the inexpensive stainless steel chardonnays (too green) from Chile that abound at the under $10 range and the sometimes too heavily oaked California Chards.

A splendid chardonnay at this price.  You’ll have to spend at least twice this much to get comparable California Chardonnay.
