Bonterra Chardonnay 2007

For immediate purposes, this is the most useful of Iron Chef’s New Year’s wines; a good chardonnay at a reasonable price that (unlike the other New Year’s wines) is still widely available.

— Iron Chef’s Review —

Nose: Butter, Oak, Pear, Nutmeg and Cinnamon
Taste: Pear and Melon with a nice spicy edge of Nutmeg/Cinnamon and Cumin. The finish was very creamy and full.
Overall: A very dependable Lobster wine

California- Mendocino
Price: $21.99
Value: 4/5
Score: 89
UPC: 082896780419

  1. I had the '06 version of this a year or two ago and was impressed with its balance, in particular for a California Chard. It had a very nice apple pie nose and at least medium body. I scored it 87+. I also like that Bonterra wines are 'organic'.
