Kunde Sonoma Valley 2012 Chardonnay, $13.99-$17.99, 92 points, poured a lustrous gold color.
Aromas of mellow creamy butter and orange with a hint of honeysuckle and sweet apple were good.
The medium body carried fair acidity with clean flavors reflective of the nose with a kiss of warm-wet-stone.
Finished well with white pepper, ginger notes, and an easy 13.8% alcohol.
When using the descriptor "balanced" many mysterious interpretations arise, but take my word for it, this is a most and beautifully balanced Chardonnay! Not as nuanced or complex as some will demand, but for pure delicious simplicity, I've had few better.
When people say they love Chardonnay, I think they must have tasted the Kunde Sonoma Valley 2012 Chardonnay!
Paired nicely with spiced fried pork chops in penne and alfredo sauce.
