This wine comes straight from the heart of the Sonoma Valley and brightens up your glass with its summery notes of tart lemon and fresh pear. The first sip reveals plenty of fruit — including apple and pineapple — and rich toasted hazelnut. This chardonnay is the perfect match for seared fish or grilled chicken, plus it’s “well-balanced and full-bodied with just the right amount of oak,” says Sydney Loney, Chatelaine health director.
