Okay, the truth was that I needed a white wine that didn't cost much to get me over until payday, so after about ten minutes, I chose the Misterio. I was honestly thinking of getting an inexpensive 1.5L but then I didn't want to have a serious amount of crappy wine on my hands (one person came through the other day trying to make amends, but brought along a crappy 1.5 liter of Bolla Cab that tasted worse than a purple crayon dipped in water).

I am wondering what this Chardonnay is blended with because for the most part, it is very demure in both flavor and acidity, becoming something akin to a stronger Pinot Gris. However, in that incarnation, it becomes something lovely to behold for just a wine to sit back ad relax with; it's mutability allows it to flow with many different dishes, never impacting the flavor of what you are consuming, but merely quenching your tongue.
