2007 Godwin Chardonnay, Floral Clone

From: Russian River Valley, California

Price: $28

Serve with: Salmon, ham

I'm not a big fan of California chardonnay, but this one won me over with its elegance and balance. There's plenty of body and intense, toasty flavor, but there's also fine acidity and complexity. The winemaker shows a deft hand with oak, which seasons but doesn't dominate the fruit.
