Precept's Avery Lane winery. I've previously written about the Avery Lane Cabernet Sauvignon, and as much as I was left underwhelmed by the 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon, I am pleased by this Chardonnay. It's a very pale yellow in the glass, with faint hints of green apple and (somewhat surprisingly) pineapple on the nose. It's 10% Sauvignon Blanc, and that percentage does make a difference. It's a little sweeter, and less oaky than your standard California style Chardonnay, with a sweet almost melon-like finish. Perfect for those last dwindling dog days of summer, now that fall is positively here and summer is technically over.
