Kathy’s Pick: 2016 Hartford Court RR Chardonnay, $16.99

I’m always looking for that perfect Chardonnay with a nice, bright note of acidity and just enough oak to add structure but not make me feel as if I’m chewing on wood as I drink it. Unfortunately, it’s not always easy to come by but we just brought this one in as a special deal and it is wonderful. Normally a $30 bottle of wine, with the deal we got, we are selling it for $16.99. It got great scores and here is one of the reviews:

“Bright, fresh and nuanced, the 2016 Chardonnay (Russian River) has so much to offer. The Russian River Chardonnay is a distinctly mid-weight wine built on expressive citrus and floral character. It also happens to be the hidden gem in this range.” 93 Pts Vinous
