“Those who bring sunshine into the lives of others cannot keep it from themselves.” — James M. Barrie
Napa Cellars Mount Veeder Chardonnay 2009 brings the sunshine. And you can keep it for yourself, but the Wine Harlots think it’s better to share, (but maybe you should get an extra bottle or two, just to be on the safe side.) Bring the sunshine, but make sure you bring enough for everybody.
The color is the gold of sunshine, with a lemony scent, with flavors of green apple, apricot and citrus blossom, with a finish of vanilla carmel. The wine is a perfect stand-alone drinking wine, but the perfect pairing is seafood, Napa Cellars suggests Scallops with Tomato Ginger Butter. The music match is “Sunshine” by Keane from the album Hopes & Fears.
The details: 14.2% alcohol. Cork closure. Varietal: chardonnay. Appellation: Mount Veeder in Napa Valley. The suggested retail is $32 USD and is widely distributed or you can purchase directly from Napa Cellars. This was a sample generously provided by the winery.
