Wonderful non--oaked Chardonay
I received the 2010 as a vintage substition in place of the 2011 I ordered. The 2010 is not labelled Steel, but simply Unoaked. I guess I can't complain about the vintage substitution, because I purchased at a priced below which one cannot refuse a vintage substitution. However, one doesn't expect to receive an earlier vintage (2010) as a substitution for a later vintage (2011), especially with a white wine since the earlier vintage of an early drinking white might already be over the hill. Indeed, the 2010 was almost over the hill, so be careful ordering this wine if it is price below the vintage substitution price. The 2010 was mediocre--probably past its drinking window.
