Yellow Tail Pure Bright Chardonnay 2021

South Eastern Australia, AustraliaYellow Tail Pure Bright Chardonnay has been dialled back in alcohol and residual sugar. The claim is 110 calories per glass, at 9.5% alcohol. Messing around with grape juice to create a bottle of wine by numbers is never good, but I suppose you could say all wines are manipulated to some extent, so what have we here? The nose is tropical, pitching pineapple and ripe canteloupe that spills onto a vanilla and green melon palate that finishes short and low-alcohol flat. Ordinary at best, given an average glass of white wine runs about 120 calories with much less manipulation.Tasted: 03 November 2023Tasted by: Prices:
