Munchitude: Mothercluckers Gisborne Chardonnay

Posted by Hotseat |

There is a story behind how I tried this wine for the first time. I HATE wine with cutesy names because I am elitist. Flash back to last year. I was at the Summerhill liquor store in Toronto, looking for something very specific for my dad: an unoaked chardonnay from New Zealand. It was this or "cat's pee", and I wasn't having that. Since this bottle was a touch spendier and was in the "vintages" department, I gave it a whirl. Honeslty, it's one of the most delightful summer whites I have ever drunk. Peachy and citrusy, with an unctuous texture, this is really a great bottle to try, and hey, it did get some yuks from the old man!
