Chilean Chardie from The Co-op
Montes Reserve Chardonnay, Chile
I kind of miss the 80s and 90s - to be honest, I rather miss 2019.
Anyway, the era of the Terminator, yuppies, Ladettes and Girl Power also gave us Big Oaky Chardonnay.
Yes, like all things, it eventually got a bit out of hand, but in its heyday, it was great.
Good Oaky Chardonnay is full of ripe fruit, butterscotch and spice; it's as easy to enjoy as one of Arnie's catchphrases.
Montes Reserve Chardonnay, Chile, (£8, The Co-op) ripe tropical pineapple and melon fruit, toasty vanilla oak and creamy brazil-nut savoury leesiness. Fresh and mineral; supple, harmonious and well-made.
Good and Good Value.
A versatile food wine, match with herby sausages, roast chicken or wiener schnitzel.
