General Impression of Barefoot Chardonnay, 2003

Wow for five bucks!  That was what I was muttering as I brought down the glass after my first taste of Barefoot Chardonnay.  I was rather shocked honestly at how good this wine is.  It did not help impressions that I had to look on the back to find the date of the wine is very small numbers below the UPC code.  But this is an excellent Chardonnay. Very easy to drink and very easy to like and just as good as many popular Chardonnays that are 2-3 times higher.  Doesn't have that really heavy oak that some nice Chards do but there is nothing wrong with this one especially at 5 bucks.

 

What Flavors are Most Dominant or Evident In This Wine?

green apple, peach, honey, vanilla, 

 

What foods will this wine go well with?

This is a delicate and fun Chardonnay so it is best to stick with typical white wine rules here.  Seafood, chicken, cheese would all be nice.  Pasta would be good but it will pair best with white sauces or very mild red sauces. Grilled Chicken is a natural fit.  Consider grilling chicken thigh and leg sections brushed with a terikai glaze and wrapped in a slice or two of bacon.  Grill them till the skin an bacon are both crisp.  Add a greek or ceasear salad and some warm bread.  Such a meal could not want a better wine to enjoy with it.

 

What's Grapes are In Barefoot  Chardonnay, 2003?

The wine is called a "blend" but I can find no information online or anywhere as to the actual make up of the wine.  Perhaps they add a bit of Sauvignon Blanc.  Of course it is clearly mostly Chardonnay.  What ever it is it is exceptional at this price point.

 

Will I keep it In My Wine Rack, If So How Much?

 Sure from time to time a bottle or two.  It won't be a great wine to age or anything so no reason to stock up to heavy.  Easy to find at most local stores so I will only keep a few around unless I hear stock is running low.  

 

Who Is Going to Enjoy This Wine?

Anyone who enjoys a light, crisp semi dry white wine will love it.  If you like white wines but 47 Pound Rooster was a bit of a more intense Chardonnay then you like give this one a whirl it should be perfect for you.  If you or someone you know is a blush addict (you know who you are) then this is a good trasition to a white wine.  In short if you don't like this then I guess you just don't like light and enjoyable white wines.  

 

What Does the Bottle or Vintners Web Site Say About this Wine?

From the Bottle - "Barefoot Chardonnay is a delightful wine with tempting flavors of green apples and peaches.  Hints of honey and vanilla enhance the buttery finish.".  Bare foot Chardonnay is perfect with seafood poultry, fresh fruits, white sauce pastas and mild cheeses, wonderful!
