From Australia's most recognized vintner, this value-priced wine straddles two distinct Chardonnay styles: rich and buttery with tropical fruit nuances, and light and crisp with some minerality. After three months in both new and used oak, the wine comes across as elegant and refreshing with a bit of complexity. Fruit was sourced from the Adelaide region, encompassing highly regarded viticultural areas including Clare Valley, McLaren Vale and Barossa Valley. Savor flavors of white peach and melon, a touch of minerality and balanced acidity. Enjoy it with salads, roast chicken and seafood dishes. Buy it at: Some Rouses locations, Dorignac's and Winn-Dixie in Metairie. Drink it at: Napoleon House and Mike's American Grill. — Brenda Maitland
