So, Arizona Chardonnay... I was expecting to hate it, but I found it surprisingly okay.
This one is still plenty lively for a 2010 Chard. It is crisp, with a tame tartness, but it is more rounded than a stainless Chard. It's starting to make sense now that I read it was done in neutral oak. I gave this a 7/10.
Some other tasters noted that it was a bit buttery, which I didn't really pick up on. It certainly isn't a butter bomb.
