This Month's Feature - the Little Penguin Chardonnay

Like a South Australian sunrise, this tasty white is bright and light. Refreshingly tropical with melon and Hawaiian pineapple flavors, this zippy fresh Chardonnay is the perfect summer white, and goes great with roast chicken, soft cheeses and strawberries. Learn more about our wines.

Rave Reviews
the Little Penguin has been on the prowl for new reviews. Here are a few of the accolades uncovered for the Little Penguin Chardonnay:

BEST VALUE - 86 points
"Bright, with a generous portion of pineapple and grapefruit flavors and hints of spice, lingering nicely. Drink now."
Wine Spectator, May 2005

Good/Very Good
"Light, nicely round tastes, with a little bit of tangy acidity. Informal and easy, good with fried shrimp."
Wall Street Journal, January 7, 2005 -- Dorothy J. Gaiter & John Brecher
The Dow Jones Inexpensive Australian Chardonnay Index

BEST BUYS 2004 - 85 points
"Aromas are light, like talc powder or baking flour, mixed with a few golden apples. The feel is soft and fresh, with soft peach and apple flavors and a juicy finish. What's not to like, especially at this price?"
Wine Enthusiast, November 2004

But if you're up in the air over what wine to serve with which food, remember the Little Penguin pairing rule #1: There are no rules! But being the opinionated penguin he is, of course there's always a few suggestions, from the quick and easy to the gastronomically extravagant.
