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.
