Canaille Santa Maria Valley Chardonnay 2019Regular price $33.00 Save $-33.00
From our friend and wine expert Charles Antin comes his second vintage of the best California Chardonnay for less than $40. Charles works with top vineyard sites and selects the best three barrels from the harvest. This wine is all about Balance. Ripe golden apples are supported by a beautiful backbone of acidity and wrapped in notes of peach compote, fresh lemon meringue, limestone, allspice, cardamom, and a deliciously long finish. If you like a touch of ripeness and oak on your Chardonnay but Rombauer is too much, this is a must drink! - GR, 12/20
