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).
