Tasting- Mars & Venus Chardonnay

Mars-Venus-Chard

Name: Mars & Venus

Variety: Chardonnay

Region: La Mancha

Country: Spain

Year: 2014

Price: $6

Shop Notes: A very nice value Chardonnay that comfortably over-delivers vs. its modest price tag. No oak here, just bushels of clean, crisp, Chardonnay apple and stone fruit with a hint of caramelized pineapple.  Juicy and clean, this is a mid-weight white that’s just perfect for parties or weeknight sipping.

My Notes: The nose on this wine was very citrusy (lemon/lime maybe?) and pome-fruity (apple/pear). The wine itself was a little acidic but not as much as I expected it to be from the nose but still very citrusy and light.

I did not have this with food.
