Modest Monday - Wines Under $10: Rex Goliath Chardonnay

HRM Rex-Goliath Pinot Chardonnay

So far we've seen the Rex Goliath Pinot Grigio, Shiraz, and Pink Pinot Grigio. What does the 47 pound rooster bring us for Chardonnay? You know what, it's surprisingly drinkable! Happy days for all buyers of $5 wine.

Here is Issue 4 of the Rex Chronicles: Chardonnay.

Review: The Rex Chardonnay has a soft golden color and aromas of pineapple, apricot, citrus, and toast. The palate is off-dry, with moderate acidity and no discernible oak tannin. The fruit is a bit muted by flavors of cream and toast. The finish is unremarkable. 

Bottom Line: This is pretty decent. The fruit is present, the oak isn't overwhelming, and a generous touch of sugar makes it go down smoothly. If someone were looking for a SUPER cheap, basic, slightly sweet Chardonnay, I wouldn't have any trouble recommending this. Color me surprised. 

Wine Geekery:
  • VINTAGE: Non Vintage
  • PLACE: America
  • GRAPE: Chardonnay
  • BOOZE: 13%
  • CELLAR: Drink now

Where did I get it? Giant
