I noticed my fingers on the other side, through the wine. I smiled. We were smelling roses, with no obstacles to blacken the countryside.
A new world Chardonnay that an old world aficionado can love.
Drink this with pan seared scallops at dinner, or with a big bowl of popcorn in front of a gently glowing fireplace. Recommended.
I had entertained the idea of starting a home vineyard on a family property within eyesight of downtown for several years. I had hesitated because I was not certain which cultivars would do well at the site.
The flavors are lovely, with the wine just starting to shed its fruit and show some secondary flavors.
