Wine of the Week: J Vineyard Chardonnay
Our Wine of the Week is this Russian River Valley Chardonnay that we picked up at BevMo. We couldn't find several of our favorite Chardonnays (like Hanna) so we decided to try something new. That's when we came across this gem of a Chardonnay which we found to be a tasty wine with notes of pear and vanilla. It has more of an acidic finish to it than the buttery finish that we like so much but it was definitely worth the purchase. This wine was a bit of a splurge as we normally try to keep our wine reviews to our favorite finds under $15 (This wine ran us about $24) but we felt is was a good find and worth the time for our review.
Just like most good Chardonnay's this wine would pair well with a light chicken or turkey dinner, personally I think it would be fantastic served along side a homemade Chicken Fettuccine Alfredo or even a good cured meat & cheese plate!
