Four Weddings and a Chardonnay

Fluorescent glowing canary thin straw with clear edges.  Nutty bouquet with a certain clean floral spiciness but not grassy… just… apple and flabby non-oakedness.  There is a densely layered fruitiness which–of course–defies oak-n-butter but still is Chardonnay unequivocally.  A certain artichoke-stem piquantness rides through all and dumps you out into the sweet finish where acidity finally catches up and balances things out.  I mean… what do you say about a wine like this?  I am trying to find redeeming qualities and layers of complexity and and just left with yellow vapidness.  It’s good.. I guess?  Whatever.  Warm, flat, nothingness in a nutty shell.  Life’s too short for bottles like this.
