Lindeman's Bin 65 Chardonnay 2014
Lindeman's sell a shiteload of this stuff and the reason is simple. Year after year it doesn't change. You know what you are going to get. Some consumers love and embrace that security and it can be easily found here.
There's lots of melons and freshness here. Rockmelon and honey dew are followed by some yellow fleshed peach as well as a little grassy flick. Buttered toast kicks late, enough to provoke thought and doesn't drown out what came before.
The acid is clingy and bitey, but this is a drop most would pair with a mid-week meal so that shouldn't cause too much havoc. The fruits sits around long enough and would go well with chicken and pasta dishes.
Often priced well below $10, it's a reliable purchase if chasing simple pleasures.
Readily available. Drink now.
