Wine Of The Week - 2018 Vintner's Reserve Chardonnay

 
Years ago, I discovered the difference between coach class and first class: Coach class offers a choice of white wine or red wine. First class offers Chardonnay or Cabernet.

Anytime someone says “white wine”, the wine that immediately comes to mind is Chardonnay. That’s not surprising, considering that Chardonnay is one of the most popular wines as well as one of the most planted varietals in the world. Though it originated in eastern France, it is now grown all over the world, including New Mexico which has the perfect climate to produce Chardonnays with a citrusy, peachy flavor.

Because it is a fairly neutral grape, most of its flavor derives from the terroir in which it is grown and the way in which it is aged, which enables the winemaker to showcase their skills in bringing out the grapes’ full potential. At the peak of its popularity in the late ‘80s, some winemakers got a little carried away with aging Chardonnay in oak, which gave it a characteristic with which it has become synonymous. However, the type and amount of oak aging, or none at all, can be the winemaker’s touch in bringing out the best of Chardonnay.

Finding the perfect balance of butter and oak: A Chardonnay for all Chardonnay drinkers to love.

Noisy Water Winery’s 2018 Vintner’s Reserve Chardonnay has a perfect balance of oak and butter that will please the palates of most wine drinkers. Traditionally a “Thanksgiving Day wine”, its dry finish and medium to full body also makes it a perfect wine to enjoy all summer long. The aroma of stone fruit and a hint of citrus leads the way into a toasted, buttery middle and a smoky vanilla finish, giving it a richness that seems creamy and yet refreshing. Truly this is a wine for all seasons!

And to quote the late Maya Angelou: “On Saturday afternoons when all the things are done in the house and there's no real work to be done, I play Bach and Chopin and turn it up real loudly and get a good bottle of chardonnay and sit out on my deck and look out at the garden.”  Granted, you may prefer to listen to something other than Bach or Chopin (I personally prefer George Strait!), but make sure you have a bottle of Noisy Water’s 2018 Vintner’s Reserve Chardonnay to enjoy. And just relax!

“Everyone can commit to 20 minutes, especially if there’s a glass of Chardonnay afterwards.” 
—Kate Winslet
