If I recommend lestoil are you going to kick me in the groin? I don’t like chardonnay. It’s too heavy.

Toad Hollow is definitely worth a shot at only $12—$14 a bottle. And the price isn’t even the best part!

@GloPro – Thank you. I will look for that.

@Adirondackwannabe – I would never kick you anywhere! How could I kick someone who sent me that gorgeous picture of the lake?

I was just feeling guilty for sending you that answer and doing some research on chardonnays. Let me see what I can find.
Glad you liked the pic. It always lifts my mood.

No guilt allowed! I was amused by it. :-)

@tedibear Now I looked into it and you’ve got my interest going. I see the Toad Hollow one there, plus some others. It might be the oak flavor that put me off before.

Nah, unoaked are steel barrel, bringing the fruit flavor to the wine, not the smoked wood, vanilla, butter flavors.
Typically, and I know you did your research, these make wonderful warm weather chards. Citrus, grass, crisper, cleaner flavors. Not as heavy, if that makes sense.

Ones aged in stainless steel.

None. I can’t stand the stuff. I’m lacking in sophistication.
