This week Georgia and I visited the annual California Wine Fair that took place here in Toronto. Over 150 producers were represented and we thought it would be fun to each select our favourites from the show for this week’s wine pick. There was a lot to choose from, we didn't try everything but we found some lovely wines.

I picked a Chardonnay, mine is from the esteemed region well known for their Chardonnay and that is of course Russian River Valley, in the Sonoma Valley. My wine is the 2013 Clos du Bois Calcaire Chardonnay. Just  released in Vintages April 2nd - $29.95 Vintages # 421941

Clos du Bois has been making wines for 4 decades now combining the best of California wines that are both fruit forward with the elegance of the French resulting in wines that are both elegant yet approachable. And this wine certainly is that.

Delicious from the 1st sip as well, with hints of citrus oranges and lemons, beautifully balanced acidity and a lovely long finish. I say a resounding YES to this wine!
