Steelbird Smoking Loon Chardonnay 2012
It never fails to amaze our hearts and minds when an unoaked appears that not only satisfies our Lovely Beverage requirement, but also doesn't break the bank.
A wine for six bucks? We were wary, but by the end of the first glass, we had transitioned to giddy.
There was the slightest hint of vanilla, which we don't particularly like in our Chardonnay, but it was just a flutter in the background, lost almost as soon as it was even considered.
Maybe the Big Box Monument To Alcohol was having a sale? We'll be back.
