Sterling Vintner’s Collection Chardonnay Central Coast 2014, California

Central Coast

Medium-full-bodied and slippery smooth, this well-priced white captures the ripe California style with admirable balance. Flavours of tropical fruit and peach mix with vanilla, butter and gentle toastiness. The oak is well-handled, and the lively acidity provides lift on the finish. Available in Ontario at the above price, $14.49 in British Columbia (on sale for $13.29 until Dec. 3), various prices in Alberta.
