Best Buy! Here’s a Chardonnay that’s as flamboyant as Little Richard and leads with a sense of tropicality in its tutti frutti, piña colada and banana Laffy Taffy notes, joined by pineapple and a slice of gooseberry pie. The tasty approach comes with a nice bit of roundness from the involvement of 100% French oak that’s capped by a lick of butterscotch and a bite of Pink Lady apple, adding up to quite a quaffer of a Chardonnay.
