Chardonnay Way

I’m not a white wine drinker.  I’m just not.  I prefer the rich, robust flavors of Merlots and Cabernets to the sweeter, drier tastes of whites.  With that said, I do have to compliment JL Giguiere of Dunningan Hills for today’s wonderful white wine.  Check it out:


Dunnigan Hills: Match Book

Type: Chardonnay

Vintage: 2009

First thoughts: smells fruity and sweet. Not what we were expecting!

The flavor sits in the front of the mouth for a bit.

Almost syrupy.

Tastes of apricot.

Final thoughts: Sweet, but not too sweet.

Overload of fruit flavors.  Hard to detect what you’re tasting.

Satisfying, but not an immediate “buy-again” bottle.  One of the better white’s we’ve had, though.

So, if you’re looking for a relatively inexpensive bottle of wine to accompany the Tilapia with Mango Salsa you’re having for dinner, this bottle is a perfect match.  If you’re looking for a wine to savor and appreciate, try looking elsewhere first.

Until next time, godetevi il vostro vino!
