"The 7 Heavenly Chards 2010 is a 10,000-case cuvee made from 100% Chardonnay (70% aged in stainless steel and 30% in French oak). Pure and ripe with notes of buttered popcorn, white currants and a hint of peach jam, it is surprisingly intense for a Chardonnay at this price point, medium-bodied and well-made. Enjoy it over the next year.

Shrewd consumers should be seeking out the offerings from this value-priced winery." (WA)

"Michael and David Winery is best known for their very popular Seven Deadly Zins bottling. As gimmicky as that wine is, it’s usually one of the better Zinfandel values in the market and it was a nice surprise to me to discover their fantastic Chardonnay, Seven Heavenly Chards. With names like this, Michael and David might would fit right in on the Australian wine scene or the horse racing circuit.

The “Heavenly” name delivers, as this wine is one of the better Chardonnay values on the market today. It’s grown in the Lodi region, 100 miles east of San Francisco. Lodi produces more wine than Sonoma and Napa counties combined and savvy producers are making great wine from the abundance of available grapes.

A bright, sweet and smokey nose is followed by concentrated buttery flavors that coat the palate. 30% oak aging creates a beautiful round texture that’s a real surprise for an $11 Chardonnay. This is textbook California Chardonnay at a daily drinking price!

Most retailers are selling this wine for $14-15 but L.A. Wine Co has the lowest price in the country at $10.95. Heavenly indeed." (Nickel & Dime)

Winery Notes:
With so many sins commited, Michael and David’s consciences were starting to wear thin. There must be a way to repent all of our sins!? With redemption in mind, the two brothers thought long and hard for a way to clean the slate for their forsaken past. At first thought, confes- sion seemed just. On second thought, a Chardonnay seemed to be the fix - a Heavenly Chardonnay at that. Seven Heavenly Chardonnay serves as a sister bottling to the Seven Deadly Zins. Needless to say, Mike and Dave have been redeemed!

Opens with a crème brulee like bouquet and on the palate, this wine is full bodied, balanced, and creamy. The flavor profile is of lemon custard, green apple, citrus, and with a hint of oak in the background.
