Scott Family Estate Chardonnay, 2010

California chardonnay in the French style.  Nothing wrong with this fine bottle.  None of the piercing oak-highs you expect from a Monterey chard.  Tropical fruit, maybe even coconut, and superb balance.  Extremely food friendly.  A great restaurant choice if you ever have the choice.

 

We had this with some beet salad dressed in minted raspberry vinaigrette, vegetable soup, walnuts and crudités.  Wowed on a weekday eve.  From the same family as Rutherford Ranch, a bottle we were less keen on.

 

Price: $19.99 USD; still trying to find in BC (not to be confused with NZ Allan Scott wines…)

 

Market Liquidity: Not bad for not Burdundy.
