I’ve decided to shut down the Minor Insanity blog and re-post my #WineWednesday posts here until I have time write new posts, probably in June after the insane Story a Day in May challenge.
This week I’m expressing my love for Unchained Naked Chardonnay a wine by Big House Wine Company. They say on their website:
“We veered off the California standard by using steel tank and neutral oak barrels; thereby preserving the true fruit characteristics of the Chardonnay grape.”
Is this why this wine blowed us away? Hell, I don’t know.
“Picked at night or early in the morning, these grapes underwent fermentation in stainless steel tanks and were freed from the common secondary malolactic fermentation, which is a frequent sentence for Californian Chardonnay. The result is a fresh and bright unoaked Chardonnay that is more reminiscent of an aromatic white than its namesake.”
Wow, this interests me, but why did I choose this wine at the liquor store? Combo of the wine’s rating, the name and the label. What else do you expect from a woman. Anyways, when we tried it, we had no idea how the wine was produced, we just loved it. Definitely, give this one a try. We had it tonight with chicken breasts and mushrooms, sauteed in a peach balsamic vinaigrette and this very wine, so cook with it too. YUM!
