Yellowtail Chardonnay

Varietal:  Chardonnay
Region:  Australia
Cost:  $7.99 – $9.99

Deep straw coloring leads into a light to medium-bodied white with a floral bouquet and an almost tart finish.  Pair with grilled white meat for best combination.

Recommendations:  Far be it from me to say that Yellowtail anything is some type of earth-shattering life-altering wine.  Now, with that out of the way, I can say that Yellowtail Chardonnay is a good gateway chardonnay.  By that I mean that if you’ve been afraid to really get into chardonnay because you’re not a fan of the buttery finish of oaked chardonnay, Yellowtail can help you ease into it.

With just enough buttery/oaky finish to it, the Yellowtail chardonnay will pair well with a range of white meats with the possible exception of some of your more delicate fish meals.  Grilled chicken and pork are a good pairing.  While this isn’t even approaching my favorite white wine, if you’re throwing a party, this is a good one to grab for your white as it’s affordable and will appeal to a range of white wine drinkers.
