This week’s WOW is for all of our customers who have asked us why we don’t feature more white wines. This Chardonnay undergoes barrel fermentation as well as sur lie aging in 10% new French oak which contributes to the creamy texture and complexity. A wonderful crowd-pleaser… perfect for holiday entertaining!
2013 Joseph Carr, Sonoma Coast Chardonnay
Sonoma County, California
90 Points, Wine Enthusiast: *Editors’ Choice* “This crisp and balanced wine offers lemon, guava and papaya, tropical without being cloying. With enough viscous creaminess to keep it medium in weight, it’s soft and herbal, with measured acidity and a golden color. It finishes lean and savory.”
The Wine Advocate: “The 2013 Chardonnay reveals good minerality along with crisp, honeysuckle, orange zest, white peach and tropical fruit notes. At $15, this medium-bodied, fresh, lively Chardonnay is a sensational value.” We agree, and at $10.49 it’s an unbelievable value! This one is going to go quickly!
