rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

The 2011 Open (un-oaked) Chardonnay is a light bodied, fruity wine with appealing pear notes. It is on the sweeter side, has a nice minerality and a medium finish. This is an easy drinker. My impression: NICE, 87 pts – for lovers of un-oaked Chardonnays; can’t go wrong for $11.95. Tasted Oct/12.
rated this wine as 85/100 with the following review:

Screw top. Almost no nose, some floral, melon aromas. Very faint honeysuckle, peach, melon on the palate. Medium-bodied with little acidity. Finishes with some spiciness. Tasted Oct/2012.
rated this wine as 85/100 with the following review:

Very simple wine with ripe fruit aromas; Macintosh apple, peach, melon. Very mellow, not a lot of acidity.
rated this wine as 82/100 with the following review:

If I am searching I notice there is some creaminess, some apple, and even some minerality on the nose, but my appreciation for this wine pretty much ends there. It's a bit watery on the palate and the acidity is less than I would expect.
rated this wine as 79/100 with the following review:

Unoaked Chardonnay. Doesn't really have much flavour. Little to sweet to my taste. Good food wine.
rated this wine as 71/100 with the following review:

This chardonnay was far to sweet for my liking - I gave it to my sister, who has for years enjoyed drinking sweetened condensed milk for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. She liked it.
reviewed this wine as follows:

A delightfully sweet Chardonnay. Light with honey and pear notes. Not a whole lot of substance; recommended as an aperitif or for a nice, hot summer day.
