A very likeable Chardonnay


Mmmm full bodied white wines FTW!!!

This creamy wonder came from Australia, via Direct Cellars. From the time I popped the bottle, the aroma was quite strong.  The bouquet was hard to nail down, but it was tingly on the tongue and velvety smooth. I could definitely taste the alcohol, and citrus like flavors.

I’d do it again.

Sußen, pronounced zoo-sin

It was a Riesling, from Germany via Wine Insiders.

Soft and full bodied on the tongue, floral aromas hinted at the slight sweetness of this very pale, and quite unassuming white. Apple yumminess came thru with a sweetness that reminded my friend of Moscato.

Definitely on my list of faces!

Aaaaaannnnndd, we’re back! #likeweneverleft

Dry, but very pleasant box wine *gasp* from South France.  #dontjudge A real pounder! Super smooth, light as a feather, and this unassuming packaging packs a whopping 3 litres, and will keep for 6 weeks (but you won’t let it, trust me!).

I was a little late taking my pic, but there’s some in there, I promise!

Mineral aromas with floral notes, beautiful crisp fruits with light traces of canteloupe on the tongue.

Pairs well with seafood, and is ever so slightly briny.

Bring on the bubbles!

 

Oh, what a delight!

This Cava from Wine Insiders is gonna be hard to beat!  Beautiful, tiny bubbles that just don’t stop, floral fruity aromas, and a taste that took me FOREVER to figure out.

The only way to describe it was cherry croissant. Yea, I know.

I guess the only way to understand it is to try it.  Get over to Wine Insiders, and get some for yourself!
