Mount Beautiful, North Canterbury (New Zealand) Chardonnay 2015

($14): The name of the winery aptly describes the wine:  Beautiful.  Crisp and lemony, it carries its 14.5 percent stated alcohol effortlessly.  This stylish edgy Chardonnay has a green apple-like vivacity to support its mid-weight body.  It works as a stand-alone aperitif or a fitting accompaniment to simply grilled fish. It’s a fabulous value!
