Friday night!

Methven 2005 Willamette Valley Chardonnay approx. $22 retail
Paired with smoky white cheddar/swiss, camembert & hard salami.

Tasting notes: just a hint of oaky vanilla, and a touch of flowers, orange and spice on the nose. Pulling out of the cellar it is at the perfect temperature for instant consumption (around 55/56 degrees F), I don't like them cold, it masks too much of the flavor. Beautiful golden straw color.

mouth feel - bright acidity that makes you crave a little something to eat, relatively refreshing and cleansing, especially following a bit of cheese.

Bone dry with a punch of minerality and a skimming of spice mid palate.
