Chateau Souverain Chardonnay 2013

You may have seen my recent post titled “A Peek Into the Past” in which I explored what happened to the Italian Swiss Colony winery.  As I mentioned in that post, the descendant of the Italian Swiss Colony (at least physically) is now called Chateau Souverain.  Shortly after publishing that post, I saw this Chardonnay in my local store.  Of course I had to give it a try!

Varietal: Chardonnay
Vintage: 2013
Appellation: California
Price: $9.99

Notes: On the nose I smelled citrus, peach and lots of grass.  The color of this inexpensive Chardonnay was a pale yellow.  It was medium-bodied with high acidity and alcohol at 13.7%.  Flavors my tongue detected included peach, toasty oak, citrus, and grass with a faint hint of caramel.  It was pleasant and will make a nice partner with light fare.
