I loved this full-bodied Chardonnay, impressive in its elegance and richness, grown in Santa Maria Valley. Beautiful notes of ripe pears and apples meld with delightful notes of minerals, spice, and honey. Its oak aging is subtly integrated. An irresistible sipper anytime you crave a good glass of wine, it’s also very well suited for the table. It’s a good choice for upcoming holiday meals, so you’ll want to stock a few bottles in the cellar. I would serve this pretty wine with lobster, Dungeness crab, halibut, or buttery sand dabs. It would also enhance a roast chicken or turkey. A very good buy at $32 for those who love Chardonnay in any of its varied styles, it’s at Tastes of the Valleys Pismo.
