Values Wine Picks March 1, 2012

Note: I publish batches of reviews that I call Good Values Wine Picks. These are from the regular section of the liquor store rather than the Vintages section, and tend to be lower priced and the most widely available of all wines. The last four reviews I did were: July 12, May 14, November 15 and October 16.

White Wine

Grant Burge Summers Chardonnay 2007, Adelaide Hills, Eden Valley, South Australia, Australia: A lovely round, buttery, full-bodied chardonnay with layers of green apple notes and toasty oak.
