- Beringer Founder's Estate Chardonnay (Napa Valley)
Unabashedly rich and buttery, the 2010 Sbragia Chardonnay delivers heady scents of Meyer lemon, ripe fig and honeydew melon with a hint of vanilla cupcake. The concentrated, multi-layered flavors of citrus, peach, crème brûlée and toasted marshmallow are carried by an unctuous, full-bodied mid-palate and bolstered by a bracing acidity which keeps the wine lively and bright. This is a Chardonnay lover’s wine, bearing the unmistakable imprint of Beringer’s long time winemaker Ed Sbragia.
- Yellowtail Chardonnay (Australia)
YChardonnay when made in this fresh, leaner style is a lovely summery drink. Forget the flabby Chardonnay wines of yesteryear, this is the modern incarnation of the variety with plenty to enjoy in its youth. Melons, white peach and a hint of nutty complexity drive a soft textured palate but in the end it's just a wonderful drink. Anything but Chardonnay is a thing of the past!
Aroma: Cashew nuts, rockmelon and white peach.
Flavour: A rush of peach and melon is met by more of the nuttiness from the bouquet. This is a lithe, seamless white wine. Serve with roast quail, pork chops or salad Nicoise..

- Kendal Jackson Special Select Chardonnay (California)
The 2011 growing season in Santa Barbara and Monterey Counties began late, with cool temperatures and higher than average spring rainfall that lowered yields. The cool weather persisted throughout most of the summer, giving the fruit a long hang time on the vine as clusters slowly ripened. The resulting wines displayed balanced acidity and great complexity.
Rich tropical fruit intertwines with grapefruit, lemon and candied lime peel. Elegantly layered, this wine exhibits a lush texture and firm backbone with a hint of vanilla and cinnamon spice to round out the long finish.

- Hogue Johannisberg Reisling (Washington State)
During the grape growing season, Eastern Washington boasts warm summer days followed by cool nights, ensuring that grapes ripen fully while retaining ample natural acidity. That even ripening gives Washington State Rieslings a trademark apricot and tangerine flavor that sets them apart. Hogue Riesling opens with a melange of aromas: orange blossom, jasmine, dried apricot, and tangerine. The palate is creamy, with apricot flavors. A naturally crisp acidity balances the slight sweetness, providing a refreshing finish.
