They’re proud of the fact that they’ve been partnering with non-profits across the United States over the last twenty-five years.
One example is their Beach Rescue initiative with the Surfrider Foundation to protect the world’s coasts and waterways.
More Barefoot Wine Reviews
In addition to the review you’re reading right now, I’ve also reviewed the following from Barefoot Cellars:
Barefoot Chardonnay Tasting
I shared this wine with my trusty tasting assistant “Big Al”.
As you can see from the bottle picture above, no vintage was indicated.
In appearance this wine is light brassy in color (like a tuba!) and richer in hue than your typical Chardonnay.
Legs are slowly falling and irregularly spaced, indicating some potential body to this wine.
I did not notice the aroma immediately upon the wine’s pouring.
Up close, I did notice that this wine is a bit sweet, with notes of ripe melon and apple.
Big Al noted grapefruit when he gave the wine a gentle sniff. A deeper inhalation revealed a hint of nutmeg.
Neither one of us noted any burn from the wine’s alcohol.
Barefoot Chardonnay alcohol content 13.0% by volume per the bottle. We were surprised it was that high!
I felt that all the flavors were subtle. I noted juicy sweet citrus, muted lime and a light nutty flavor.
Big Al felt there was a lot going on with this wine. For him, the dominant taste was sweet grapefruit. On the tip of his tongue he noted a nutty overtone.
We both found the wine’s taste very enjoyable, mostly due to the multiple aspects of flavor present in this wine.
Barefoot Chardonnay finishes long, juicy and buttery! We both counted a 7-9 second finish that was evident all over the palate.
What stuck with us in the finish was the richness of the flavor, including some of the sweetness that carried through.
No appreciable tannins were noted.
Overall we both really enjoyed this wine!
If you look at my previous reviews of various Barefoot Cellars wines, you’ll see that my reviews have been mixed (see above).
I think of all the Barefoot wines I’ve reviewed, this is my favorite so far.
Recommend! Big Al concurred.
From the bottle:
Barefoot Chardonnay is a delightful wine with tempting flavors of green apples and peaches. Hints of honey and vanilla enhance the buttery finish. It is perfect with seafood, poultry, fresh fruits, white sauce pastas and mild cheeses.
Barefoot Chardonnay price $6.99 making it an Under $10 Buy.
Suggested Food Pairing
For a suggested food pairing to go along with Barefoot Chardonnay, let’s go with what they recommend…
In addition to what they say on the bottle, they also suggest a white sauce pasta with light seafood.
To me that means angel hair pasta with a light cream sauce and some grilled shrimp on top.
