Funky Llama Chardonnay 2008
This heavily marketed Argentine white is not the product of a single vineyard but rather of a combine which buys up grapes from various sources, produces the wine and then sells it under its own label, usually a cute one meant to appeal to the American consumer. If you're on the lookout for a bargain quaff you might want to try this. It's fruity, with citrus accents and no oak but disintegrates at the finish. Drinkable, but no more. Still, at the present sale price of $4.99 it's certainly cheap.
