The aromas from this Chardonnay are reminiscent of ripe pears and fruit crisp. The palate is balanced nicely with classic barrel fermented flavors and creamy midpalate textures. The finish reminds one of fresh fruit and cream. Enjoy this multi-layered wine slightly chilled before a meal or with any entree where a full-bodied white wine is appropriate.

We weren’t surprised to see Foppiano’s zinfandels and petite sirahs performing well in our June issue tastings—those are varieties the Foppiano family considers their specialties. But it was surprising to find this bright, tense and fully saturated chardonnay from Foppiano, where a new winemaker came on board in 2015. Nova Perrill started his career at Mount Eden Vineyards; at Foppiano, he’s been allowing some of the lots to ferment and undergo malolactic fermentation on their own, then extending the barrel aging, presenting a 2017 with lemongrass tension and bright yellow flavors of nectarine and apple. It’s spicy and nutty, cool and fresh. Best Buy
