Nine Below Chardonnay 2009 - $8

I'm rarely a fan of wine gimmicks, so perhaps my bar was set rather low for this low-calorie, low-alcohol Chardonnay from Southeastern Australia. In any event, I found it drinkable if undistinguished, featuring a straightforward flavor profile of green melon and pear. The finish is relatively clean, though a nit marred by a saccharine-like sweetness that it is a bit out of balance.

This wouldn't be my first choice for an Australian Chard, but if you're in the market for a low-cal, low-alcohol white, this might well do it for you.


Drinkability: 7/10
Price: 3/5
Total value: 10/15


  1. I really liked. It was light and fruity, but still tasted like wine. I'd drink it even even if it weren't low calorie, but that is definitely a plus. Wonder what the red is like.

  2. Tried both the Shiraz and the Chardonny and I have to say that I think the white is better than the red.

  3. I haven't tried the red yet, though it's in my wine fridge. The white is surprisingly good, given the hurdles in making it. F&E didn't really push it - I wonder if they're planning on keeping this line around in the wake of the recent inventory shakeup.

  4. I love the chardonnay but live in a remote area, and have to buy on line, but finding it difficult to find suppliers of this wine on line
