Joel Gott – Unoaked Chardonay 2011

DdV: 90
WS: n/a
WE: n/a
Price: $11.00
Blend: 100% Chardonnay
Source: Various California

A bright refreshing Chard offering here.  The vanilla and honeysuckle on the nose gets you ready for some oak on the draw but you will find none.  Nothing but bright key lime, apple, and stone fruit with crisp acidity and a clean finish.  This is a fantastic summer sipper and will work well with a myriad of Chard worthy food.  Great value!

Ferrari-Carano 2010 Fume Blanc

DdV: 88
WS: n/a
WE: n/a
Price: $12.00 – $14.00
Blend: 100% Sauvignon Blanc
Source: 100% Dry Creek Valley (Sonoma County)

A very nice bright and slightly creamy sauv. blanc.  Herbs and citrus on the nose meld into lemon, lime and hints of pineapple on the mid palate.  Clean bright mineral finish with just a pinch of oak. This has a wonderful creamy mouth feel but is still light and balanced.  Great summer sipper and will pair nicely with light chicken, fish, or white sauce based pasta.
