Chardonnay exploration tasting class – Friday, May 1st at 5:30

In today’s world, we look for crisp clean white wine without regard to the weight and depth of flavor. Among the most complex of white wines we find the chardonnay. Chardonnay has managed to remain among the top varietals for generations; it may lose favor for a period of time, but always returns to the market place with a vengeance. The chardonnay has the ability to come across as light as mineral water, or mask green apples with heavy cream; butter and pineapple followed with bananas; or simply produce the effect of pineapples and limes on the tongue. The biggest secret to a good chardonnay is to put the fruit into the hands of a master vintner and watch the magic transform the juice into a delightful work of art.

This evening our tasting tour will take us on a  journey through these flavor profiles and beyond – with 2 parallel trips through the price points of chardonnay and through a few regions of the world as well. Our hope is that this classic grape shows it’s ability to be the vixen that captures the heart and the palate. Chardonnay when properly chosen for its intended use will sip as fantastically as one can imagine, or if the right one is plucked from the shelf it can equally hold up to any food combination one can dare to throw in its direction.

Come, sip, enjoy and cherish the comfort of good wines and good friends!
