2016 Southern Living Central Coast Chardonnay

A great front-porch wine, this full-bodied white is rich, vibrant, and focused. It tastes especially good on a warm night or as the star of any Southern gathering. We recommend pairing it with lemon-roasted chicken, low-country boils, mild flavored fish like flounder, or fresh vegetables cooked on the grill.
