PRIELER CHARDONNAY 2007
The Grade: Outstanding. The Mojo: Most folks don't realize that Austria can produce exceptional Chardonnay, but the Prielers prove it can be done and done well with their Chardonnay Ried Sinner 2007 ($22.98 limited), a light-to-medium bodied white with fragrant white flower, nectarine and Fuji apple aromas and flavors, possessing mild minerality tempered by the slightest bit of residual sugar. Very similar to a white Burgundy, this divine white wine is ideal for winter chicken and pork dishes. Be bold and adventurous and give this one a try.
