Wine of the Week: 2012 Varner Foxglove Chardonnay

Who could use a nice, unoaked Chardonnay from the Central Coast? I could. And I suspect you could too. Lean and crisp, with bright citrus notes and a fine balance, the 2012 Varner Foxglove Chardonnay is a natural with food. It’s also an outstanding value for the price.

Enjoy it with grilled oysters, that shrimp you just threw on the barbie or some grilled salmon. It’s a good match for chilled summer soups and composed salads too.

Region: Central Coast

Price: $12 to $15

Style: Lean and crisp

What it goes with: Grilled fish and shellfish, chilled soups, composed salads.
