Joseph Carr Chardonnay 2013
|Region||California, Sonoma County, Sonoma Coast|
EDITOR'S 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.
There are an astonishing 14,000 cases of the 2013 Chardonnay from the Sonoma Coast. It reveals good minerality along with crisp, honeysuckle, orange zest, white peach and tropical fruit notes. At $15 a bottle, this medium-bodied, fresh, lively Chardonnay is a sensational value. Drink it over the next year.
