2009 Sterling Vintner's Collection Chardonnay

We close Raid the Cellar Weekend with this very genial, pleasant chardonnay, a steady and affordable contribution to any BBQ.

The label suggests pineapple, guava, and peach things with toasty oak and vanilla. I've never had guava, tropical things make me break out in hives; that aside, I was getting more sweet, apple and melon things. Either way it's pleasant goes okay with hot dogs.

(In case you missed it, the theme of Raid the Cellar Weekend was Red, White, and Beer!)
