I shared this Riesling with a few friends this past weekend. It proved to be a favorite and the wine offered a refreshing and delightful experience. The wine has exceptional acidity as it is still a young wine. However, it has great potential to develop with 2-3 years of cellaring. I have ordered 4 more bottles.
Ubiquitous as Chardonnays may seem, this particular Byron Chard. stands out on its own. Not in the least bit overly acidic or bitter, it has a toasty, buttery taste with subtle hints of citrus, cream, and minerals as its being enjoyed. I paired this wine with a mayo and celery based chicken salad, sour cream and cheddar noodles, and some creamy havarti cheese w/ caraway. Definitely a smooth, rich, and pleasant Chardonnay that I'll buy again.
I paired this the other night with a meaty lasagna dish, not knowing what to expect as it was my first time trying it. However, I was pleasantly surprised at how well it complimented my meal. A very nice Sangiovese with moderate tannins, black fruit, cocoa, floral notes, and a smooth finish. Also, its great on its own! Will buy this again as its a real value for under $20.
