2006 - Yellow Tail Chardonnay The Reserve
Light and Forgetful
Aug 03, 2008
1 star
With the stunning value of the Yellowtail Reserve Shiraz, we thought we would try it's Chardonnay counterpart, from the same year.  But this Chard was so light, so basic, so uninteresting, I could hardly think of anything to say about it.  Light body, light flavor, very shallow...no wood, no depth, no distinguishable Chardonnay flavors.  Instead of pouring the remainder down the drain I'm going to reduce it to use in a sauce.

More Crisp

This chardonnay vintage seems to be a little more crisp and lighter than previous vintages. The pear and lemon flavors roll through the tongue and finish with nice acidity and a watm apple peel component.  Drink with a heavier fish.  Best of the bunch.

Too Much

This vintage was a little more rounded out but it was still too much fruit, too much oak and too much  alcohol. The crisp apple is nice and there are some pretty pear undertones coming through.

Too Hot

The alcohol is coming through too much for me to recommend this vintage, others are more crisp and lighter on the oak.  The fruit is decent but over powered by the oak and alcohol.

Again, I hate to pick on this producer but we didn't like any of their wines.  This was just ok at best.  The oak chip flavor and high alcohol is all too common.

Not for me

We got this as a party favor, and tried it with of course - fish.  But this wine was all over the place and tasted more like alcoholic water than white wine.  I can't really say anything except it was bad.

THe apple fruit isn't strong enough to compensate for the over oaking and alcohol in this wine. It was still pretty decent with the fish we had for dinner.  Drink right away.

Too Fake!
May 29, 2008
1 star 1 star
The oak kills this over oaked, fake fruit, and too much alcohol.  This wine really shows its terroir, or at least that it came from a hot Australian summer!  This isn't a wine that will make you try to get your money back, but you probably won't be buying a second bottle.

The 2003 vintage of this wine was much more refreshing and smoother with the fruit and oak.  The oak just dominates this wine way too much.  It doesn't have the refinement of previous vintages which made it stand out.

Cheap wine that delivers!

For the money, you will have a hard time beating this wine.  Yes its fake fruit and oak, but its still very crisp and balanced for the price point.  This will most likely deliver just as much value as a lot of $20 california chardonnays.

This chardonnay is extremely crisp and cleanses your palate very well.  You're expecting more oak and you get less, you expect less mnerality and you get more. Good Buy.

A cheap wine that continues to astound
May 07, 2008
1 star 1 star 1 star
This wine is very reasonabley priced; some would call it cheap. This continues to be the best surprise in quality for me in white wines. I can't believe I liked this wine so much. I had no expectations based on it's price, and I was very nicely surprised. Exceded all expectations and I like when that happens. Crisp wine, citrus and peach flavors and bouquet. Light straw color. Good balance, no harshness of flavors or alchohol, light bodied. Oddly enough, I refridgerated this after opening, and the next day fruit jumped up a good notch. No oak tastes or off flavors either. Between this and the Schmitt Sohne family of reislings, the best quality/value white wines out there in your supermarket. Don't write it off because of the price; you owe yourself the chance to see for yourself.

Nice Chard. Great w/ Food. Paired w/ Sea Bass w/Gremolata and mushroom risotto. Interesting lemon hits you in mid palate. I get some pineapple and minerals.

You can't beat the price on this stuff. Good wine from Australia at a $5-7 price point. Got to love it!

2001 - Kidron Chardonnay
Summer Chiller
Aug 30, 2007
1 star
Stylistically, this wine is a `light' version of more typical Chardonnays. The color and intensity of the wine are subdued by design with the use of neutral oak barrels. These barrels are generally about 5 years old and do not impart the strong toast, oak, and cream character of Chardonnays stored in new oak. The result is a very pleasing, highly drinkable wine that would do well to be nicely chilled. The color is light silvery yellow and the nose has some stone fruit, light vanilla and a hint of green. The body is medium and more stone fruit, a hint of citrus, and a hint of cream come through on the palate. Medium finish. This wine is perfect for sharing on a hot spring day out on the porch.
