Fess Parker Santa Barbara County Chardonnay 2015
Wine EnthusiastNice and easy aromas of lemon sorbet, Gravenstein apple and jasmine emerge from this ever-reliable bottling from the late actor-turned-vintner's family winery. The flavors are also straightforward and quite quaffable, with a light acidity framing apple flesh and Anjou-pear slices.
Wine AdvocateA rock-solid white that sells for a song is the 2015 Chardonnay Santa Barbara County (90% Chardonnay, 4% Pinot Blanc, 3% Viognier and 3% Riesling); it gives up lots of buttered orchard fruits, brioche, spice and a hint of citrus blossom in a medium-bodied, straightforward, beautifully quaffable style. It's impeccably made and perfect for mid-week drinking.
