Wine Wednesday: Beringer Chardonnay
So, when I saw this 2009 Chardonnay on sale for about $8, I decided to pounce.
I'm seriously glad I did.
To the nose, it has a light feel -- like that of a sauvignon blanc. It's smell mostly consisted of citrus and pear, with an acidic twinge that only 14% alcohol can bring.
The taste, however, was completely different. Though it had the citrus and pear I was expecting, it had a yummy oaky flavor and creamy mouth-feel. Yeah, it's a full-bodied wine, but the taste of alcohol was negligible. Good for me! Bad for my liver. :)
It has become one of my go-to wines for the foreseeable future.
Price: $ (under $10)
