Wine: Estancia Chardonnay
Producer: Estancia Winery
Region: California>Central Coast>Monterey County
Date tasted: 5/7/14
Place tasted: I was in a lush green meadow enjoying the company of a new friend who wore the most charming golden earring. Refreshments of ripe strawberries, Camembert, and a chilled bottle of delightful chardonnay rested at blankets edge while the late afternoon sun warmed our naked little toes. As afternoon turned to evening a brand new happy place was born and the taste of kisses, sweat and wine still flavor the edges of my memory.
Served with: Camembert and strawberries. Would go well with cream sauces, chicken, seafood, soft cheeses and more subtle and delicate flavors, such as mushroom & pine nut risotto.
Appearance: Like a glass full of gentle moonlight with a glowing honeydew shine.
On the snoot: Ripe tropical papaya, with a breeze of honeysuckle and rain drizzled in caramel.
Taste: A tropical fruit bowl that catches your attention while intertwining with kiwi and melon. She has an enchanting creamy smooth nature and fruity finish that comforts the palate in a sincere lingering afterglow.
Balance: Muted acids and brightened sugars practically give her angel wings; very well balanced and supple bodied. Mountain ridges form and then slowly melt down the sides of your glass like a moving landscape.
Comments: A sexy well crafted wine. Marilyn meets Jayne meets Deneuve...you get the idea. I would chose this chardonnay for any white wine occasion, but especially when romance is on the menu.
Ah spring! I wish you all happiness and love.
