2010 Josh Cellars Chardonnay
Joesph Carr, or as his friends call him, Josh, is an award winning sommelier who established his own vineyard in 2005 in the beautiful Carneros region, one that spans both Napa and Sonoma counties, to produce his delicious wines.
This Chardonnay was particularly made for the heat of summer, with its wonderful tropical citrus and sweet melon flavors along with ripe peaches and pears, and just the right touch of vanilla and smoke, it is totally refreshing and light. It has a nice medium-body, well-balanced acidity, a creamy texture and just a hint of butterscotch on the finish. Overall, a great everyday drinking wine for summer.
Food Pairing: This light white pairs very well with creamy and mild cheeses, fruit, salads, cold seafood, white fish with a light citrus sauce and, my favorite, chocolate.
Rating: 3.5/5 corks
