The classic Monterey-grown Chardonnay has a wonderful creamy texture, yet it isn’t heavy with flavors from barrel aging, with only 30 percent new French oak. Upfront aromas and flavors of tangy apple, pear, and zingy citrus are beautifully balanced by mineral notes and nuances of tropical fruit. It’s a great choice as an aperitif for sharing with friends, and excellent paired with pasta primavera, roast poultry, and halibut or shellfish with buttery sauces. You’ll find it at Central Coast Wines in SLO, only $22 retail for this ultra-premium white.
