More about this wine from California
One of the early mottos at the WA offices was "chardonnay doesn't have to suck!" This quip was based on how much California Chardonnay is on the market that tastes like oak and butter got together for an over-the-top and super tacky get-together. Chardonnay is so much more than oak and butter.

The crew behind The Atom brand have sourced top-notch Chardonnay grapes from specific coastal vineyards in California and turned the lush grapes into an excellent vino with very scientific and technical winemaking skills. In honor of the science of winemaking, the team named this bottle "Half-Life." The juice is a balanced coalescence of ripe stone fruit, apple blossoms, lemon zest, and toasted coconut that greet the palate and dissolve to rich caramelized sugar, baking spices, and a touch of smoke.
How to drink it

While...

You finally saved up the money for that trip to Hawaii and you're not about to waste a damn second doing anything but drinking a whole bottle of vino by the ocean.

Listening to...

Eating...

Take the island vibe and run with it! Queue up slow roasted pineapple pork for some thoughtfully garnished tacos with plenty of smoky hot sauce on top.
