Frei Brothers Reserve Chardonnay 13’

Naked Wine Review 165

Wine: Chardonnay
Producer: Frei Brothers
Vintage: 13’
Region: California>Sonoma County>Russian River Valley
Price: 13.00
Date tasted: 6/21/15
Place tasted: The magic of the summer solstice filling me with light and the heat of the day sizzling inside me I put on some Edith Piaf, popped the cork of this chilled beauty and enjoyed a 2 o’clock glass of wine from the deck of my fantasy home overlooking the pure calm of oceans spirit and inhaling the rich moist comfort of her breezes. Eyes closed and solid in my visualization I pledged to reunite and never ever leave her side again. 
To living the dream, Hazza!
Served with: Cardamom maple saLmon, oh so good. Try it along side white fish or chicken, simply prepared. Rich creamy foods with mushrooms and summer vegetables seasoned lightly with fragrant herbs such as basil or dill would work well. Just stay away from lots of spices or acidic content. 
Appearance: Like an orb of sunlight sparkling in your glass she dances in erotic graceful swirls and swells. 
On the snoot: is the scent of orchard blossoms wafting in the summer air over ripened apricot preserves on fresh baked yellow cake.
Taste: Soft tropical papaya awakens the senses then gives way to burnt caramel and butterscotch that blend into her creamy texture. A long wet finish clings to your lips like a menage of kisses from dream time lovers.
Balance: She has a smooth creamy texture livened by alcohol and animating an ever so slender and elegant body. 
Comments: If you like a crisp bitchy chardonnay like I Don't, then you will have to look elsewhere. This wine is warm and approachable; a chardonnay that gives hugs and love. If you as I do wish a buttery rich naked expression on the tongue then you would do well to choose this wine… what, too much?
