Passaggio New Generation 2011 Unoaked Chardonnay
The grands are growing up (how does that happen?). Whole blocks of family are off and running this summer; some to Chicago, others to Costa Rica, still others camping up and down the east coast of the United States.
So we gathered and visited as the school year drew to a close, and heard the plans and tales for what lies ahead. We shared a glass of this wine -- one of our favorite brands as it happens -- with an unexpected visitor and this was the scene:
She drank, gave the bottle a studied look, and exclaimed with a smile, "I like this. It's exactly what I expect from my glass of wine!"
We wouldn't allow others to do our writing for us, but there was no arguing her observation.
Presented to Tom and I for review, this smooth, cultured wine (they grow up so fast!) is available for about $23, and it's perfect for sharing with friends. Don't be ashamed to stash some away for yourselves, though, because it is oh so delicious!
