WHAT: KWV Cathedral Cellar Chardonnay 2005 (white) Rating: NNNN
WHERE: Coastal Region, South Africa WHY: Here’s a real crowd pleaser, so long as you’re not surrounded by people who dislike big, oaky Chardonnay. The bouquet has attractive smoke, and a nice dollop of custard cut with citrus pleases the taste buds. Lots of pleasure for the money. Don’t forget to let it warm up a bit if it’s been in the fridge all day.
PRICE: 750 ml/$14.95
