Chardonnay Spring Lineup

12 great wines worth checking out

 


With the weather warming up (even if erratically), it’s definitely time to begin to add more white wine back into our daily rotation. It’s not quite time for summer-refreshing, high acid wines like Sauvignon Blanc and Riesling – even if they’re always welcome – but a couple of mid-weight Chardonnays certain would be in order.

This lineup of wines really runs the gamut from rather large-scaled to light and delicate, with a little bit of everything in between. Standouts for me include the excellent 2007 Perception Sangiacomo ($55); the always reliable Stuhlmuller, 2009 in this case ($20); and the exceptionally priced 2009 Earthstone from Sonoma County ($10).

    I look forward to trying some of these. One that you didn't mention, but that I really like is Fog Crest Vineyard 07 Estate Chardonnay from the Russian River Valley AVA.
