Friday Wine Tasting... From the Windy City

Wine of the Week
Lot 205 Charonnay

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.
