True Myth Chardonnay Wine 2013 (Review)

Last week I did my usual run to Gelson’s to pick out some new white wine options for the sunny spring weather and I noticed a bottle of Chardonnay with a beautiful and interesting label: True Myth. An oxymoron for a name? Well, like I said, the label caught my eye because it displays a Goddess-like woman throwing her hands up in the air and colorful butterflies are flowing from her hands. I love wine art.

I have a unique connection to butterflies and mythology and since this particular bottle of Chardonnay was on sale for $13.99 (usually $18), I had to get it. True Myth Chardonnay (2013 vintage) is from the Edna Valley region according to the description on the back of the label; it represents Mother Nature “a myth proven to be true over centuries of farming and grape growing. No matter the era, she is the embodiment of the earth’s ability to provide us with it’s bounty…”

You can’t help but notice the pineapple at first sip and for me, some candied lemon and vanilla notes. There is also a subtle minerality and not too much oak for a California Chardonnay. The finish is slightly full, soft and citrusy and if you are looking for a cooler climate Chard with some “spring time” personality, then this white wine may be just what you’re looking for. Overall, this Central Coast wine was enjoyable and I would pair it with some herb present dishes and cheese... oh, especially some fabulous Parmesan. Regardless, you won’t regret this wine’s beautiful and thought-provoking label.
