I’m back! Sorry, but my workaday job became work-a-nights and work-a-weekends, too. While that hasn’t completely changed, I’m happy to say that it has eased a tad. So I decided to use this opportunity to get a very quick post up. And here it is!
Winemaker: Simply Naked
Wine: Unoaked Chardonnay
Notes: The color was pale yellow, and the bouquet held scents of citrus and peach with hints of spice. This unoaked Californian was light-bodied with good acidity. Flavors I found included citrus, some peach, a touch of spice and a bitter chemical-like finish. Overall, it struck me more like a Sauvignon Blanc than what I generally anticipate from a Chardonnay. Admittedly, I’ve had only a few French Chardonnays. Perhaps this Simply Naked is more in keeping with a European style? At any rate, I can’t say that I was especially satisfied with this wine experience. It was a perfectly potable beverage but not my glass of Chardonnay.
