2006 BLACK OPAL CHARDONNAY



Friday, 5/11, Little Rock, AR
Well tonight was my every 3 week card game and maybe it was my poor play or maybe it was something else, but I really did not like today's reviewed wine. The 2006 Black Opal Chardonnay from Australia exhibited light golden color in the glass but the nose was non-existent. I tried to pick something up when it was first uncorked and was unsuccessful. I let it warm a little in the glass, for about 15 minutes or so, but whatever fruit it had was not showing up. I finally gave this one a taste and was treated to a bland, thin tasting wine with too much acidity and a burning finish. I only paid $6.15/bottle for this one so it was no huge loss. Based on lack of any taste I gave this one 2 Corkscrews. I can't recommend it and won't buy it in the future. It wasn't "pour it down the sink" bad, it just had nothing notable about it. Sit Long, Talk Much, Laugh Often, Drink Wine!
