This refreshing and flavorful Chardonnay really impressed me. It offers a delicious array of juicy pear and tangy apples, perfectly balanced by subtle notes of citrus, spice, and vanilla. It’s perfect for the holiday season, or anytime you crave a great glass of Chard. I’d serve this with everything from Dungeness crab and lobster to roast turkey and chicken. A very good deal for the quality at only $18 retail, it’s available at Ortman’s Paso Robles tasting room, online at ortmanvineyards.com, and Gather Wine Bar.
