Debut Chardonnay/Chenin Blanc 2010
Some blends are just a mishmash, others manage to bring out the good qualities of their constituent elements. This 70/30 Chardonnay/Chenin Blanc mix from Argentina falls into the second category: it's a nicely rounded white melon and mango mix, with enough of a flinty edge to keep it from the fruit juice quality that characterizes so many of the cheaper Chardonnays. An extremely nice buy at $5.99.
