Very refreshing with pleasant rich aromas of pears and melon. On the palate, expect stone and mineral flavors followed by a full-bodied, fruity finish. 100% Chardonnay. The wine is produced with absolutely no oak. A perfect complement to lemon chicken, Asian dishes or lighter pasta and seafood entrees.
"A fine value…offers delicate creamy peanut butter aromas. Silky-textured and plump, this is a medium-bodied effort filled with apple and peanut flavors." - Wine Advocate
Tortoise Creek is a range of very fine varietal wines from the Languedoc district of the South of France. The Languedoc region is a land of diversity, reflected in the countless subtleties of its many wines. The remarkable weather conditions and vast array of quality growing areas give each wine a uniqueness found only to the Languedoc. Winemakers Mel and Janie Master understood the potential of the Languedoc, and with their passion for good wine and good food, embarked on a commitment to produce quality wines at value driven prices.
There are other un-oaked chardonnays that I like, but this one was definitely wimpy.
