A price drop brings this delightful Chardonnay into value territory. With its lively mix of citrus and stone fruits, the suggestions of rock and white pepper, and the overall crisp attack, this is a summertime picnic wine. Drink it chilled, and it will go well with anything from egg salad to sliced turkey or ham.
