Bishop's Peak 2008 Chardonnay Central Coast


This excellent, value-priced wine offers forward-fruit flavors thanks to stainless-steel fermentation. Aged in neutral French oak, it has tasty tropical fruit notes with pineapple and apricot, and is nicely nuanced by notes of orange and lemon. I paired this with clam spaghetti with an olive-oil sauce and it was wonderful. It’s a good choice for halibut tacos, roast chicken, shellfish salads, or roast pork dishes. It will be available very soon at $15 at Talley Vineyard’s tasting room and in local markets.
