Risotto and a Chilean Chardonnay from Trader Joe’s for dinner tonight. It’s Kosher, too – let’s see what we’ve got!
Terrenal Chardonnay (2013) Curico Valley, Chile – $6
Aroma: lots of apple and pear, with just a touch of vanilla.
Taste: quite nice – apple, pear, a hint of white grape, and no discernable oak. It’s balanced and clean, with good acidity – this is a food wine, not a thick buttery Chardonnay.
This is very well put together – especially considering it was harvested just 8 months ago! Quite nice for the price; I’d have no hesitation pouring this for dinner with friends, let alone a company party. Recommended!
