Late Summer Sipping: Wines for Lazy Summer Days

 

Bridlewood Monterey County Chardonnay

Bridlewood Monterey Country Chardonnay

Vintage: 2006
State or Country: California
Price: $10

This is a chardonnay for people who aren't chardonnay lovers (I say this as someone who orders the somewhat sweeter Pinot Grigio 99.9 percent of the time.) That's probably because it isn't too oaky or dry; instead, you'll find a refreshing blend of nectarine, apple, and mandarin orange that's perfect for summer. I paired it with some reduced-fat white cheddar cheese on whole wheat crackers -- perfecto!
