Barefoot Chardonnay NV

Another archival transfer from Blogarhythms to Oenophilogical.  First published on 11/7/2010.

Barefoot continues to be ubiquitous wherever wine is sold in my area.  And, happily, it goes on sale fairly frequently.  So I thought I’d give another varietal from their lineup a try.

Vineyard:     Barefoot
Varietal:       Chardonnay
Vintage:       NV
Appellation: California
Price:          $6.95

Notes:     Not too bad, especially given that I grabbed it on discount at $5 for the 750 ml.  It isn’t particularly refined, of course.  But it is pleasant.  What I tasted — plenty of lemon and peach fruit flavor.  The only detractor is a heavy-handed oak near the finish I would even call “woody.”  But it didn’t stop me from finishing my glass.  Can’t be all that bad, now can it?  I was just sipping it this time around.  Bet it would stand up to hearty chicken dishes and some of the more flavorful and spicy fish or seafood entrees well.  Not subtle or refined enough for the lighter white fishes, I would think.

Important:  I am not a professional sommelier or wine connoisseur.  See “About” for the full disclaimer.
