Trader Joe’s Vinas Chilenas 2008 Chardonnay

Price: around $2.99

Color: Pale yellow

Nose: Tropical and citrus fruit

Taste: A slight tinge of oak, though I doubt it ever spent time in a wooden cask of any sort.  It has a nice balance of acidity, fruit flavors, and that “oak” thing.  Light bodied.

Summary: I started shopping at Trader Joe’s way back when.  They have always carried great deals on wines, especially Chilean wines, though their selection is fairly limited.  This is a great value in a light chardonnay.  Perfect light summer wine with salads, seafood, or crackers and cheese!

You can’t really go wrong with this one.
