Heads or Tails

Today’s 2008 Munselle Vineyards Shadrach Chardonnay is crisp, refreshing - and just perfect for your upcoming spring or summer soirées.

When we tasted this wine at our recent tasting panel (every wine that we select is carefully scrutinized by a panel of wine experts from every corner of the wine trade), Agent Red immediately asked the winery for every last bottle in existence. At today’s special price, this wine will go very quickly, so please read our full review to see if this wine is for you.

Born of a lovely vineyard in the verdant Alexander Valley, aged in 100% french oak, and made by the very talented Tim Hardin, today’s wine has all the ingredients of great Chardonnay.

While the wine was aged in oak, some of our panelists assumed that it was stainless steel fermented. This, because the wine is very fresh and very easy-drinking, rather than overly buttery or oaky. Think fresh. Think balance. Think… now!

Tasting Profile

Look:

Light golden hues with even coloration from the heart of the wine to the edge of the glass. When swirled, the wine has a dense look, settling quickly.

Smell:

Very clean and fresh, with delicate citrus blossom, creamed white honey, lemon, light pear and subtle fresh green fig.

Taste:

Rich and layered with dense flavors of Meyer lemon, honeydew melon, creamed honey, flint and a hint of white pepper.

Finish:

Very long and flavorful with the fruit tailing off to flint and subtle white pepper.

Pairing:

Enjoy this rich, bright wine with grilled turkey burger loaded up with all the fixings!
