08 Loxton Hawk Hill Chardonnay ($28) ☺☺☺

Chris Loxton produces some great wines out of Sonoma. The Hawk Hill Chardonnay is one of our favourite 'boilerpalte wines' which we can go back to time and time again for its consistently great flavours. The Chardonnay shows great pineapple and lemon with a hint of buttery cream finish from the new oak ageing. This wine goes really well with fresh seafood and is best served chilled straight from the bottle. Great value and without the usual californian dominant oak. Just right for summer.
