We're starting off with premium Chardonnay. California is firmly in control here with three of the five top spots. Kendall Jackson's Avant and the De Martino Legado Reserva are nipping at the leaders' heels in sixth and seventh places respectively, with selections from South Africa, Brazil and Chablis languishing in the back of the pack.
Moving on to a summertime favorite, Zinfandel, I see the big brands out in front with my favorite producers sittting far back from the pack. Doesn't anyone want to help Carlisle or Sobon make a move here? Brazin Old Vine Zin is threatening in sixth place, with Sin Zin right behind.
Value Italian Whites
This has come down to a race of Pinot Grigios, with Soave trying to make a play for fifth. It'll be tough for any of these contenders to unseat the Grigios, so this will come down to an exciting final round to see who is crowned the winner!
Premium Spanish Red
This is another tight category, with a class of wines taking the top three spots: Rioja, in this case. A pack of contenders are threatening. Wines from Monsant (Celler el Masroig), Bierzo and Ribera del Duero (Emilio Moro) are closing in on the leaders, though one has to wonder if a second set of Rioja has the legs to surpass them in the home stretch.
This is one of the most exciting categories of the day with wines from all over the place on the leader board. Challengers from Navarra (Gran Feudo), Provence (Domaine Houchart) and Italy (Tasca d'Almerita) are looking to make this interesting. Sadly, many of the Italian roses have fallen well behind the leaders here.
