I’ve been thinking…I know, don’t be scared.
I wanted to write about Chardonnay. The differences and nuances of the grape are amazing to me.
Last night, Peter and I shared a french Chardonnay with Indian food. Olivier LeFlaive, well known french chard maker. dry, lemony, crisp…lovely chardonnay. Tonight, completely different. I met a friend at a restaurant and had a Chateau St. Michelle Indian Wells Chardonnay. Soft, creamy, tropical… went perfectly with our appetizers.
Chardonnay is truly an amazing grape that can take on all different kinds of characteristics, depending on the winemaker.
Back to the thinking part… the big box store is preparing for the entrance of Hundred Acre Ark Cabernet. Now, this has completely piqued my interest. As a matter of fact, I can’t stop thinking about it.
This is a really high end, highly sought after, and incredibly expensive wine that has never come close to coming to the big box store! For the hoarder in me…I REALLY want to possess this wine. Now, I can’t afford it, I don’t need it…but that really isn’t the point, is it? Doesn’t the fact that it will be there, calling my name, taunting me to own it…be enough?
Or maybe I will just go visit it until it goes to another good home. Hmmm.
