*Disclaimer: I received this wine as a sample from Sean Minor Wines.
I’m afraid a box of wine from Sean Minor got lost in my basement. We had a bit of a problem in the basement when our hot water heater let go and things got shifted around and buried. I finally have time to catch my breath again after having the baby and resort everything out and I came upon this box of Sean Minor wines from 2007. I’m two vintages behind on the 4 Bears Chardonnay. The current vintage is from 2009 and these notes are from the 2007 4 Bears Chardonnay. The wine clocked in at 13.5% alcohol by volume, had a real cork closure, and the current vintage retails for around $9.
On the nose I got pear, pineapple, tropical notes, and peach. In the mouth I got apple, green apple, pineapple, pear, and tropical notes. This wine was all fruit for me, and holding up quite well for the price point. The 4 Bears Chard would be perfect for your next party, with a wallet-friendly price and a taste that’s easy to please.
