Many White Wine fans simply prefer a Chardonnay to a Sauvignon Blanc or other Whites. However, finding a delicious Chard that doesn’t badly bruise your Mastercard can be a real challenge. The Sleuth has a great suggestion for this month: the Tangley Oaks Lot 12 Chardonnay 2015 from Mendocino in Northern California. As compared to a great number of similarly priced Chards (the Tangley Oaks Lot 12 2015 retails for just $15), this Value Chard truly outplays its class. To quote Wine Enthusiast, the Tangley Oaks Lot 12 Chard 2015 was judged “sophisticated and full bodied, … generous style of wine wraps complex and subtle oak spices around a warm, generous core of ripe pear and apple notes.” However, this Tangley Oaks Chard avoids the trap of being overly oakey and buttery, while still boasting of a creamy, elegant finish. Retailing at only $15, the Tangley Oaks Lot 12 Chard 2015 is well worth a try. Pair this one with baked chicken or grilled mahi mahi for a home run! Widely distributed. Cheers!
