Vintages Wine Picks October 2, 2010

White Wine

Torres Gran Viña Sol Chardonnay 2008, D.O., Penedès, Spain: Vintages Wine Panel: Torres adds a dollop of the indigenous Parellada grape to their Chardonnay. The Parellada contributes a nice crisp punch to this round and generous Chard. Torres’ eco initiatives (e.g., the use of lightweight bottles) have garnered them green awards. My note: Wonderfully balanced and tasty! Aromas of green apples, peach, butterscotch and smoke. Nicely balanced. Perfect for Sunday dinner of roast chicken. A steal at this price. Pair with: planked or smoked salmon, roast chicken. Drink: 2010-2013. 171660 13% D 750 mL  $14.95 Score: 88/100. October 2, 2010 Full Review Add to: Shopping List Cellar
