When we purchase wine, we usually do it in pairs.  One to drink now, one to drink later.  Later can be 6 months or 3 years.

In our wine cellar we found a bottle of Whitecliff Vineyard & Winery’s 2007 Reserve Chardonnay.  If you have any of this in your cellar – lucky you!  We have 3 bottles left and I’m not sure if I’ll share.  This Chardonnay is 100% from their vineyard.

The bouquet on this wine is butterscotch with a background of citrus.  You can taste some honeydew melon, lime and pear.  The honeydew melon is very strong but not overpowering.  This wine has nice balance with a long slightly acidic finish of honeydew.

I would enjoy this wine in the next few months.  You never know with wine, it’s forever changing and right now this Chardonnay is tasting mighty good.
