Sometimes I just want an old reliable, a solid standby I can order just about anywhere with just about anything. In recent years, chardonnay has fit that bill for most white wine lovers (for good reason--its balanced flavors can go with everything), and yours truly is not excluded.
So what's my nice, economical go-to?
I'm a fan of Gnarly Head. This chardonnay offers heady flavors of citrus and pear and a touch of vanilla. I can cook with it and pour myself a glass to drink while I prep, knowing I'll be fully satisfied with the results of each experience.
Pick up a bottle for only $9.99! (though, PS, I can usually find it on sale at my local wine merchant)
Spread the word: everybody needs to have a go-to white wine!
