Costco just released a summer version of their winter Wine Advent Calendar: the “Hello Summer Wine Sampler 2021”. We are so in love with this idea and this sampler, as it’s a box of 12 unique wines (in perfectly sized 375ml bottles) where one different wine can be sampled each day for 12 days.
Today is Day 2 (of 12) of the wine sampler: a white wine from Spain Reflective Wings Chardonnay (2020).
See below for our thoughts on Costco’s Hello Summer Wine Sampler (2021) and its Reflective Wings Chardonnay (2020). Stayed tuned for more posts like this as we’ll be reviewing every single wine from this Costco wine sampler.
What’s the Costco Wine Sampler (2021)?
In Costco’s “Hello Summer Wine Sampler 2021”, it contains 12 wines: 5 white wines, 4 red wines and 3 rosé wines. And it is meant to celebrate friends, sun and summer fun! See below for more details about this amazing wine sampler.
Costco’s Hello Summer Wine Sampler (2021) | A Review
Our Review of the Reflective Wings Chardonnay (2020)
Type of Wine
This 2020 rose is made from chardonnay grapes.
How and when to drink / taste
This white wine is described as having “Apple, pear, citrus and vanilla” flavors.
Our taste testing team loved the sweeter and crisp notes from this wine, as the tangy citrus and green apple flavors builds once you take a sip. But just as soon as these flavors peak at the back of your mouth, the taste disappears, making you want more.
We paired this chardonnay with a calamari steak that has a caper butter sauce and green salad. It was delightful! One could also pair this white wine with other types of seafood, hard cheeses and other salty foods.
The Costco’s Hello Wine Sampler (2021) is is $49.99. This translates into around $4.00 per 375ml bottle of wine.
It seems as though you cannot buy Reflective Wings Chardonnay (2020) separately from the Costco wine sampler. Let us know in the comments if you find out otherwise though.
As a result, if you want to try this wine, buy the Hello Summer Wine Sampler (2021) at your local Costco. Like many things at Costco, especially seasonal items like this, they may sell fast.

The Bottom Line
We recommend Reflective Wings Chardonnay (2020) from Costco’s Hello Summer Wine Sampler (2021) and rate it 4.0 Stars (out of 5)!
Our team loved this Chardonnay as it had sweet and crisp citrus and apple notes. This wine pairs well with seafood (it was so good with our calamari steak and caper butter sauce), hard cheeses and other salty foods.
