We have a new weekly feature for you hauties! Every Wednesday, we’re visiting the good folks over at Post Road Liquors in Wayland to find a great new bottle of wine for under $20.00.
For this “Wine Wednesday” they’ve recommended an elegant looking bottle of chardonnay. Here are the details!
2016 Raeburn Russian River Chardonnay
COST – $17.99
GRAPE – Chardonnay
COUNTRY – United States
REGION – Russian River, Sonoma, California
POST ROAD’S DESCRIPTION – A balanced expression with mild oak influence lending itself to soft vanilla notes, complemented by a bright pear/nectarine undertone. Perfect as an aperitif!
Tales From A Tasting…
Post Road told us this golden chardonnay would make a great aperitif. So, like good doobies, we opened it before dinner and enjoyed a glass. Here’s a little secret, we’re huge chardonnay fans. So, this wasn’t going to be very challenging.
Upon the first sip, this lightly buttered wine melted in our mouth. We might say it was almost sweet. But, a light and crisp fruit note followed onto our palate making it super mellow.
Raeburn is a fairly new winery and is lovingly fermenting their chardonnay in 75% French and Hungarian oak, 50% new. If you’re a fan of a classic Chardonnay, then this one will go down easily for you.
Because it can be hard to “enjoy” wine during dinner while feeding kids, we poured our second glass and enjoyed it on the couch after everyone was in bed. That was even better than the first. 😉
