I went down the chardonnay trail last night. Ot  maybe chardonnay tail. Despite the kangaroo or wallaby (?), this is Chilean. Cheap at the equivalent of $9.39 USD, but acceptable. It was a gift.

Really?  Does it say that on the label?

 

Yes. On the rear label. In Spanish, English, and Chinese.

Interesting:

Australia’s most widely exported wine brand Yellow Tail has unveiled a range specifically for the Chinese market but made in Chile to avoid China’s draconian tariffs on Australian wines.  

The wine, owned by Casella Family Brands  is being sourced from one of Chile’s biggest producers, Santa Carolina, and the range is to be named Yellow Tail World Series.  

 

 

So Yellow Tail basically slaps their label on Santa Carolina wines.

My first white malbec.  Very refreshing, tart.  Nice in this hot weather.

My local grocery had this marked down to $2.99 so I took a chance on it.  It's quite fruity which I like in this heat (105 today in Tucson!).
