Friday Wine Tasting... From the Windy City

Wine of the Week
Lot 205 Charonnay
$11.00

This weekend we are in Chicago celebrating my husband's birthday and while out to lunch yesterday (at the most amazing little restaurant, Southport Grocery and Cafe) I discovered this delightful Chardonnay. It has great fruit, a nice crispness, not overly oaky, very easy to drink. It is a great find!

Tasting Notes: Showing a particularly ripe, generous aroma of bakedapple, ripe citrus, pineapple, toasty oak and a touch ofbutterscotch, the wine is clearly intended for near-term drinking. Lush and smooth on the palate, its crème brulee oaknotes and fruit keynotes of baked pear and pineapple makeit a great partner for meatier grilled fish such as ahi or opah,and equally delicious with lighter poultry dishes.
