Ten Buttery Chardonnays for Under $20

Bringing you some feasible Friday fun with numbers…just in time for the weekend! Actually most of these wines are available for under $15, which is amazing considering the quality.

Fans of the buttery, creamy variety will enjoy these ‘Fab Chards’! I like mine fruity, but on the dry side, with hints of vanilla and oak of course!

Any fans of the new ‘un-oaked’ Chardonnay out there? I am curious if oak lovers find those enjoyable. I prefer these types with oak better.

Feel free to share some of your own great wine picks.

Have a wine-derful weekend all!

  1. Thanks for sharing your picks. I have never tried the Chamisal, but I’ve added to my “to drink” list!

  2. As the Chamisal is unoaked, it is not buttery at all. It is very fresh, light, and crisp with citrus notes.

  5. Any Chard that describes its taste as any of the following , pineapple, pear, green apple. citrus , or grapefruit is NOT buttery!! Many on your list describe themselves in these ‘ fresh, bright’ terms. I want Buttery as in the style of 30 years ago. Where can I find any?

    • Hi James,

      I have good luck finding a them at Total Wine. They do a nice job of hanging signs with descriptions like buttery, creamy, oaky vs citrus, pineapple, unoaked. I will say I did find all of these to my liking despite the descriptions. At one point, Total Wine dedicated an entire encap dedicated to buttery vs citrus. I too avoid the citrus due to the acidicity that I find comes with it. You have inspired me to write a follow-up post of more buttery chards. Thanks for commenting!
