2014 Carmel Road Unoaked Chardonnay, Monterey

Medium straw color in the glass. While Chardonnay is still the white wine of choice in restaurants and the marketplace, not everyone wants a glassful of butter, spice and cream every time. Unoaked Chardonnays let the fruit shine through. In this offering, scents of tropical fruits and citrus lead to juicy fruit flavors with a note of chalky minerality. This white is medium-bodied, with some juiciness at the finish. Try it with bistro fare, like a warm chicken salad.
MSRP: $22 (September 2016)
