Like the red and the rosé from the same family vineyards, this Chardonnay is to be found mostly easily on the shelves at Asda.

It’s wine that’s deeply rooted in California’s Napa Valley, where “cool breezes and fog allow the grapes to ripen slowly and evenly”. The result, according to Sutter Home Winery, is “rich, creamy apple flavours” and “crisp citrus notes”. We’re not sure if we’d go quite that far, but it’s not bad at all. Like a lot of other alcohol-free whites, it’s a bit sweet, but the sweetness doesn’t dominate, and it deserves a decent 3 out of 5.
