It’s wine time! Today I’m reviewing the Costco Kirkland Signature Sonoma County 2017 Chardonnay.
Chardonnay is an extremely popular wine grape that can be planted in various locations around the world such as Italy, New Zealand, Australia and California. The Costco Kirkland Signature Sonoma County 2017 Chardonnay is easy to drink and refreshing! The wine is crisp, clean, medium bodied with a smooth finish and a little bit of spice! There’s a definite “oak” taste but it’s subtle. I definitely could taste citrus notes, flavors of pear, apple and vanilla. I also tasted a bit of spiciness which gave this wine some "bite". This wine also doesn’t taste as acidic as other wines I’ve had in the past.
The bottle of wine cost $13.99 Canadian at Costco which is very reasonable for a higher quality bottle of wine here. Consider though that the price will vary a lot depending on where you’re living due to taxes and other circumstances. As I’ve previously mentioned Costco in the United States has far cheaper liquor prices than Canada.
Let’s be honest, buying wine is way more convenient than making your own. Unless your super into producing your own wine, I recommend buying it.
I’m not going to say a lot about the great debate regarding wine having health benefits or not being healthy for you. You can decide that for yourself. I will say that wine is pretty much empty calories and it does have sugar so if you’re diabetic a glass of wine may increase your blood sugar levels.
I can’t say this Chardonnay was the best I’ve ever had but I wouldn’t hesitate to buy another bottle or serve it to guests.
Nutrition: Not Applicable.
