Lemon cream and melon on the nose
Lively core and enough acidity
Not much finish, but tapers effectively
Well, maybe it is possible to make a good Chardonnay for under $5. I was first intrigued by the Fusee label when I found it in a local liquor store bargain bin. After discovering that it's a project of Don Sebastiani & Sons, I decided to give the wine a try. I've had the Cabernet Sauvignon, which is actually drinkable at $4. This Chardonnay isn't bad either, also priced at $4.
What a bargain! And an interesting thing happened- I had half a bottle left over and put it in the fridge. Due to travel plans and other distractions, neither my wife or I had a chance to finish the last glass for two weeks. Amazingly, two weeks later, the wine actually tasted fresh and enjoyable. Raise a glass!
