Red Rooster Chardonnay 2006

OK, very briefly: what sticks with me is the pear flavours and the balanced acidity. This one has no oak (not that I mind some oak) nor does it have that buttery character - it's more like a sauvignon blanc than a chardonnay. It would go well with brie cheese or maybe even sushi, but would be just fine with any typical white-wine food I would guess. Just finished the last glass (well, ONE of us did), wish I had more.

88 points. Bought at the winery for about $18 if I remember.
