Review: ***+ $ Playtime Blonde Chardonnay, Lake County, California, 2013, = BEST VALUE

Check out today's pricing and retail availability for Playtime Blonde .

Original tasting and review : This is Playtime Blonde Chardonnay, Lake County, California, 2013, finished at 13.9% alcohol, first sampled a mere one year from vintage date.  Playtime is a value-priced line from the team at Shannon Ridge. Review sample provided by winery representative.

In the glass: White with yellow glints.

On the nose: Poured at room temperature and swirled vigorously, shows light and sweet grassy fruit, flush with pear and peach.  From the aroma, seems like this will be light, sweet and bright.

On the palate: The primary elements on the palate are in fact peachy and peary, with a creamy surround and sweet acids that lift the full experience.  Modest finish that ends crisp in your cheeks, nicely balanced.  Not a profound experience, but incredibly friendly and fun.

In summary: Overall, rates three stars with a big plus for balanced deliciousness on the five-star Spirit of Wine scale.  Best value at an incredibly attractive retail price point.
