Wine: Grayson Cellars Chardonnay

Grayson Cellars Chardonnay

Grayson Cellars Chardonnay

I have a daily occurrence of people walking into the shop looking a great value. They want the $40 bottle’s quality for $10 and I try to find these rare, exquisite values to match their pallet and budget. It’s a tall order, but one Christopher’s Wine & Cheese takes very seriously.

One of the most classic cases being as they look over our selection they see the Rombauer Chardonnay and hang their head in near disgust when the see the price sticker (just as I would in their shoes) and reminiscing with  me of the time they tried and fell in love with the Rombauer Chardonnay and how they have yet to find any other chardonnay they like. I chuckle and smile as the empathy wears heavy on my heart and ask them if they’re willing to try another chardonnay that’s about one-quarter of the price, but a suitable substitute for what they are seeking.

I pull the Grayson Cellars off the shelf and tell them of it’s rich deep malolactic fermentation in French and American Oak Barrels. How the heavy buttery/cream sensation plays with the spiciness of the oaks giving way to a gentle green apple sensation on the fore of the tongue giving way to an explosion of bright pineapple and kumquat sensations on the middle of the tongue and just as you’re swallowing that soothing, comforting sensation of a banana  starts at the hinge of your jaw and works it’s way down the entire length beside of your tongue.

Without doubt, every customer that has tried Grayson Cellars Chardonnay as an affordable substitute for the far pricier Rombauer Chardonnay will return again to purchase this wine many times.
