Il Cuore Chardonnay – from the wine virgin

The Il Cuore Chardonnay was very interesting. With most chardonnays I have tasted, they have been very smooth, buttery, and fruity. This chardonnay still had some of these characteristics, but overall, it wasn’t as fruity as others. There was a bit of honey and musk in the scent and taste.

The sweetness was muted when the wine was by itself. However, when paired with the ham salad, the sweetness was brought out of the chardonnay. The musky flavor was still present in the finishing. I enjoy wines that have a honey taste, so this wine was very good to me. It was just intriguing to find that this chardonnay didn’t taste like most of the apple/pear flavored ones I have had previously. It shows me that I still have a lot of exploring to do.
