The original (and maybe only) blog that focuses on the restaurants and foods of the Lake Norman Area. I discreetly visit area restaurants and post my own unbiased reviews. I hope you enjoy. Bon Appetit!

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)
Beringer, Founders' Estate

This type of wine is one of my favorite aside from the sauvignon blanc.I used to drink too much wine but my Lubbock dentists noticed that my teeth are getting yellowish. I then have to undergo teeth whitening treatment so I had no choice but to drink wine occasionally.ReplyDelete
