Cannonball 2020 Chardonnay continues to be a perennial favourite, expressive with ripe apple, lemon custard, ripe pear, buttered toast and well-integrated oak spice flavours generous and smooth on the palate and delivering it all under $20. The Chardonnay grapes for this vintage were sourced from coastal vineyards in Mendocino, Monterey, San Luis Obispo and Sonoma. Chill and enjoy with roast chicken.

Chardonnay food pairings: barbequed salmon, barbequed pork roast on a spit, roast chicken dinner with all the trimmings.

Always a favourite, Cannonball 2020 Chardonnay does not disappoint with its ripe apple, pear, lemon custard, toasty oak and nutty flavours generous on the palate.

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.
