The days are steadily growing shorter, and whether you are already nostalgic for the endless summer sunshine, looking forward to a break from the Southern heat, or you’ve had your pumpkin décor out since the end of July, fall is prime porch-sitting time. For those watching sunsets from their rocking chairs, there’s a Chardonnay to keep your summer spirit alive. If you’re curled up on the glider with a cozy blanket, try the red blend. Or, if your style is more camp chair by the fire, we’ve got the perfect whiskey recommendation for you.
Toad Hollow Unoaked Chardonnay
Bright and fresh, this Chardonnay was sourced from vineyards along the banks of the Russian River and aged in stainless-steel tanks with no oak contact. As you bring the wine to your nose, you’ll notice orange blossom, tropical fruit, and a hint of almond biscotti. On the tongue, you’ll experience melon and mango flavors with a creamy custard finish and a snappy ginger spice that lingers.
