Capel Vale, Western Australia “Debut” Unwooded Chardonnay 2007
Imported by Tom Eddy Wines, $16
This may be the first wine from 2007 that you’ll try (remember that harvest there comes during our northern spring). If so, it promises to be memorable. Very vibrant, with bright ripe apple and citrus flavors, it’s guaranteed to taste refreshing. Unlike oak-influenced chardonnays, its flavors come solely from the grapes. Try it with cool summer salads—tuna, shrimp, chicken, and more.
