Life would be dull if everyone�s penchant for wine were identical. Like a knight setting out to slay the monstrous fire-breathing dragon, searching for wine that is agreeable to the masses and their wallets at the same time is a challenging quest.

Friday Monkey has come to the rescue.

By choosing quality fruit from South Eastern Australia, Friday Monkey is able to produce wine that tastes great yet also appeals to those with the strictest budget. As I always say, �you would have to look hard to find a bad Australian wine� and this monkey is no exception.

Vintage Info:
�Fresh citrus/melon and white peach fruit aromas in harmony with nutty, vanillin French oak overtones. Concentrated melon, citrus and stonefruit fruit flavours complemented by soft, creamy yeast autolysis and delicate nutty oak nuances. This wine has an excellent structure with great length of flavours that are complex, yet fresh. An easy drinking wine designed for immediate enjoyment." -Friday Monkey

Recommended Food Pairing:
Winery�s Reccomendation- �Serve nicely chilled. This wine is ideal with good food and would complement most seafood, chicken, game poultry and white meat dishes.�

My Reccomendation- Cool this one down before you set it beside your favorite white meat or seafood dish. This blonde monkey is quite friendly and amusing with a wide variety of food compliments or even just one on one.

Wine Whore Score:

Pale golden straw in color, this wine is packed with great fruit included melon, peach, and tropical aroma with a hint of honey. This sweetness pairs with hefty acidity that presents itself as refreshing and fit to stand up to the palate of a variety of dishes. Hints of oak are positioned delicately like a cheery on top of a sundae weaving subtle woody overtones into the fruit.

Every wine has a place and this particular Chardonnay is fun, easygoing, and looking to party. It proudly earns the scores which depict this disposition in the areas of cost, taste, and enjoyability. With a price tag lower than $10/bottle this Chardonnay scores a 9 for cost and a respectable 7 for taste giving it a total score of 30 out of 40 points and an average score of 7.5 out of 10 points.

What better day is there for cracking open a nice refreshing bottle of wine with friends, and family? The next time you want to celebrate the end of a long week, kick back and relax with this loveable creature of a wine, Friday Monkey.

It may be a little hard to find it locally in our neck of the woods right now but it should be easier to find in the coming months.

Thank you both for your support and great comments! :)

Summer will soon be here and I am stocking up on my whites. You know I'm a dry Riesling fan, but I'm always looking for new Chards. I'll be looking for this one.

I've seen that a lot in my local stores. Will check it out. I drink more red than white, so maybe I'll try one of their reds.

I've almost bought it several times. Now, I WILL buy it!
