After living in Sonoma County for two years, and drinking plenty of wine from the region, you could say I've definitely had my fair share of Russian River Valley Chardonnay.
The Kalinda 2016 Chardonnay is not only a great value, it's also a fantastic Chardonnay coming from California, packed with apple and citrus notes. The acidity is well balanced and near perfect. If you're the type who usually doesn't like California-style Chardonnay (possibly because it's too oaky, or even buttery) I'd say give this bottle a try, as it is the complete opposite of what we all come to know and expect from a typical California Chard. And for the price, you really got nothing to lose.
