From the bottle:
California's Central Coast. The land of milk and honey, and a wine region worthy of discovery. Moobuzz wines are deeply rooted in the coastal vibe - authenticity in a glass. Ripening slowly on Monterey's breezy hillsides, our Chardonnay is whimsically elegant...deliciously seductive.
Aromatic layers of key lime and lemon oil entice the nose before a swirl of the glass releases a subtle touch of oak. A crisp entry evolves into a lush medley of melon, pear and apple flavors across the palate, leading to a smooth and satisfying finish.
The 2014 Moobuzz Chardonnay begins with a very pleasant aroma of pear, lemon, cream, a touch of pineapple and just a bit of buttery oak. Tasting the wine shows similar flavors to the nose wrapped up in a really smooth, creamy texture that is just a pleasure to drink. Tart green apples and pear flavors in the mid-palate lead into long lasting notes of butterscotch on the dry finish. The oak treatment on this wine shows enough restraint to be almost perfect - just enough to complement all the flavors of the wine without overwhelming it. This is a wine that will leave your mouth watering until you take the next sip!
