Now here’s a Chardonnay that will stand tall with any other in the under-$20 category. Bennett Family Wines is an extension of William Grant and Sons who have been dedicated to hand-selecting excellent wines and spirits for over a century. Bennett’s Winemaker is David Cronin, who before coming aboard in 2001 made wines for Far Niente, Joseph Phelps, and Niebaum-Coppola.
Sourced from several vineyards in the Russian River Valley, this wine from the excellent 2011 vintage delivers way beyond the price. If you’re not seduced by the bouquet of pineapple and buttered brioche, Chardonnay lovers will find irresistable the ensuing layers of ripe apple and mango, the subtle note of rosemary, and the long mineral-laden finish. Give in!
