Tasting Notes

We can tell you this much: our Kalinda private label hooks you up with awesome wine at a fraction of what you'd otherwise pay for this exact same wine under its normal label. While we have to remain quiet about the source of this beauty, we can tell you that it sells elsewhere at a much higher premium. Get it while it lasts.

    There's much to love about the wines under the Kalinda label - variety, quality, flavor and value. If you enjoy a leaner style of Chardonnay, this should hit the spot. Plenty of lemon and green apple notes, electric acidity and a smooth, easy finish makes this an easy choice when you're shopping for a refreshing wine to end (or start) your work week.

    Clean, somewhat floral aromas intertwined with pineapple, red apple, and stone fruit. The citrus pop on the palate, combined with a balanced level of acidity, make this chardonnay the perfect compliment to any lighter meal or appetizer. The lack of oak/butter flavors make a lawn chair and music a great pairing as well.

    After living in Sonoma County for two years, and drinking plenty of wine from the region, you could say I've definitely had my fair share of Russian River Valley Chardonnay. The Kalinda 2016 Chardonnay is not only a great value, it's also a fantastic Chardonnay coming from California, packed with apple and citrus notes. The acidity is well balanced and near perfect. If you're the type who usually doesn't like California-style Chardonnay (possibly because it's too oaky, or even buttery) I'd say give this bottle a try, as it is the complete opposite of what we all come to know and expect from a typical California Chard. And for the price, you really got nothing to lose.

    A delightful summertime white--the perfect "poolside sipper." Quite elegant and soft. Some citrus notes and fine acidity. Not your overblown, full-throttle California Chardonnay--just an easy-to-drink white value wine. Apple aroma and flavor with a fresh, lively finish. This was made by a very famous Russian River Valley producer. Note our new label. Alas, our names are not on the label.
    Drink from 2017 to 2020
