    DianaBeisch45: I love the Frank Family Chardonnay. It is full bodied, heavy oak, vanilla, pear, and a little citrus. A friend calls it the red wine drinkers chardonnay. We purchased the 2007 chard in the Napa Valley in September 2008. Winery is a blast to visit. It h...  more

    mrsduston: More important than the price is the oakiness of the wine, I really am alomst willing to pay anything just beacuse I don't like a chardonnay that doesn't have that oakey flavor and so few people make it. Thankyou for all your suggestions, keep ...  more

  • Riverwalk
    Riverwalk: J Lohr can be found for $10 and it is certainly buttery/oakey. I know I will probably get some feedback here about what they have added to their wine but end of the day I've yet to find one in that price range that beats the taste for butterey/oakey....  more

  • JGarofalo3
    JGarofalo3: I would add Foxglove Chardonnay to the list too. It is the 2nd label made by Varner and is an outstanding wine with great QPR. For the splurge wine, Varner's Chardonnay again is a great value as is Seavey (although perhpas not as oaky as you would li...  more

    SlightlyPotty: The following are all cheap Chardonnays with a bit of character:

    2002 Deakin Estate - Australia $7.99
    It has a slightly tangy, fruity flavor, hints of peach and melon, but not much of either and not a long finish either. Certainly harmless enoug...  more

    mrsduston: I am looking for a nice buttery/oakey chardonnay that is priced well enough to drink often(not more than $10 a bottle). I'd also like to know of some nice ones that are worth splurging on as well. So many of the chards are made in stainless these da...  more

    Jane: I'll be the third to chime in that Sonoma-Cutrer chardonnays are excellent wines. You can never go wrong with any of them. Acacia A Chardonnay is also a very good wine.
