You know that I’m a fan of Trader Joe’s brand wines for their exceptional value.
You should also know that I’ve been in a white wine type of mood, lately.
When I found this $6 Chardonnay made from organic grapes, I had to check it out.
Color: A deep, Golden Delicious apple flesh kind of yellow.
Nose: Green apple, peach skin, lemon, and lime fruits are accented by a subtle toasty note.
Taste: Fruits of apple and pear are wrapped up in a toasty pie crust, topped with a lemon squeeze.
Score: Not the most complex of wines, but it brings a refreshing flavor at a great price. 87 points.
The acid of the wine elevates the buttery fish to bring out this really fun toasty and nutty flavor.
This is a great pairing.

Today is #ChardonnayDay!
I ain’t gonna lie…
This mofo snuck up on me this year.
Luckily, I had this bad boy on hand…
100% of the grapes from the Jason-Stephens 2012 Estate Select Chardonnay come from their vineyard in the back woods of the Santa Clara Valley. Jason-Stephens does two Chards. The Estate Chardonnay is 100% Stainless Steel fermented and aged, while the Estate Select sees a fair amount of oak and goes through secondary malolactic fermentation. It’s 14.5% alcohol, and retails for 30 bucks.
Color: Bright straw yellow.
Nose: Very clean nose of green apple, lime, pear, and wet rocks.
Taste: There’s a good weight to this wine. It’s got a big initial hit of toasty oak up front, which quickly gives way to buttered green apple, minerals, and lime zest.
Score: This wine is pleasant, but the finish is a bit awkward. All-in-all, it’s a solid effort from one of my favorite local wineries. 86+
While tasting the wine, I put together a quick little Indian dish for dinner…
Pairing: The acid of the wine plays well with the lemongrass of the curry. It really makes the spices pop. What a great pairing… I rule!
