Product Description

Bacchus delights in the many appearances of Chardonnay – from the butter ball, oaky glycerol Californian style, to the crispy, minerally Chablis style – and all those in between. This one grape varietal can bring pleasure to many different factions of Chardonnay lovers.

 

So today, Bacchus rolls out the 2016 Ferrari-Carano Chardonnay from Sonoma County.

 

Where does this fit on the Chard chart? After a few bottles, Bacchus declares that it will provide satisfaction to fruit lovers who like a hint of toast and roundness, and who want to know they are also drinking an adult beverage.

 

Chardonnay like this is a better fit for the winter, and is suitable for the holidays. Why? Despite being chilled, it is almost a winter warmer. The vast array of fall fruit flavors are not only tasty, but the warming oak and cinnamon notes are comforting. How would you relate this to Chablis? For Bacchus, nothing equates to a razor sharp steely Chablis during the height of summer, especially with a plate of shellfish. So this is very different.

 

But this isn’t summer, and we look for more filling and soul feeding meals.

This Chardonnay is a fantastic winter cocktail wine and as appys get passed around, is just the right fit for slightly spicy stuffed mushrooms, or bacon wrapped scallops. It is heaven with shrimp cocktail – all the staples of an office Christmas party. We might also suggest a paring with a creamy cheesecake or apple pie ala mode.

 

Ferrari-Carano is a beautiful winery up in the hills of Sonoma County, in Dry Creek Valley, Healdsburg. It is worth a visit if you get a chance to travel to wine country.

 

Bacchus gives two thumbs up and his toes as well. The price he offers today is also remarkable – it is the lowest price in Massachusetts, and you can own as much of it as you want.

 

Awards? Glad you asked.

93 points, Gold Medal in this year’s North Coast Wine Challenge.

 

Enjoy!
