Review: *** $ Callaway Cellar Selection Chardonnay, California, 2012 = BEST VALUE

Check out today's pricing and retail availability for Callaway Chardonnay.

By way of background, opening thoughts: Let's try this bargain priced chardonnay introduced by Ely Callaway, inventor of the "Big Bertha" golf club.

Original tasting and review : This is Callaway Cellar Selection Chardonnay, California, 2012, finished at 13% alcohol.

In the glass: Light yellow with hints of effervescence.

On the nose: Poured at cool room temperature and swirled vigorously, shows tangy and lemony bubbly elements.   From the aroma, seems like this will be light and sparkling.

On the palate: The primary elements on the palate are in fact softer and sweeter than anticipated, with a soft fruity cast with tiny hints of pepper.

In summary: Overall, rates three stars on the five-star Spirit of Wine scale.  Best value at its low price point.
