Charles Shaw ChardonnayPosted: August 2, 2007 | Author: marga | Filed under: Wine | Leave a comment »
Two-bucks chuck chardonnay just won some award at some fair, and thus I wanted to try it. I read that sweet wine went well with spicy food, so I had it with the balti lamb tikka I made today for dinner. It was not a good combination. The lamb made the wine taste too sweet, an assault to my palate.
I tried it hours later and liked it more. It now tasted like semi-sweet white grape juice, with a sharp, bitter finish. It’s still a bit too sweet to sip much of, but it is a sipping wine. For $2, it’s very good.
Mike, however, didn’t like it.
