1995 Sergio Traverso Chardonnay Reserve ($8).


December 22, 1996|By Michael Dresser

This toasty, rich chardonnay from the Rapel region of Chile is a real eye-opener. A veteran California winemaker, Traverso has fashioned a complex, exquisitely balanced white wine that could go head-to-head with many $15 chardonnays from the Napa or Sonoma valleys. There are well-integrated flavors of vanilla, lemon and apple and none of the funky character that plagues many Chilean chardonnays.
