2006 Alice White Chardonnay
South Eastern Australia
Crab dip, fried calamari, Buffalo wings
This is not an outstanding chardonnay. It is an outstanding $7 wine. It delivers a clean, pure and simple version of this varietal, with none of the heavy or overripe flavors that can creep into Australian chardonnay. It's on the light side, with the typical chardonnay flavors of lemon, apple, nuts and spice. Restaurants should check out this widely available brand. It's a happy-hour kind of chardonnay.
