2009 Four Vines Naked Chardonnay
Santa Barbara, California, USA
people love it!
Now that Memorial Day has passed and you've gotten your first sunburn, taken your seersucker jacket for a spin and re-christened the front stoop as your new living room, there is only one thing left to do. That's right, find your go-to summer wine.
"Bad Boy" wine maker and former Bostonian, Christian Tietje, gives us our summer blockbuster, the 2006 Four Vines "Naked" Chardonnay. Forget what you know about Chard as this wine is stripped of oak and those stereotypical buttery flavors. Instead, this is a crisp and clean drinking wine, perfect for a hot summer day. The wine has a terrific balance of fruit and acidity with flavors of crisp apples, citrus fruit and pears.
Drink with beet salad, grilled chicken and lots of friends.
