Sean Minor 4B Central Coast Chardonnay 2008 wine review by (PB)
Disclosure: Sponsored review--This wine was sent to us by our friends at Sean Minor wines.
Okay hang onto your palates and get ready to run to find this wine!
It presents with a light golden hue and flowery, sweet candied bouquet enticing my nose while sitting on the table in front of me. Really lovely!
Bouquet: Magical, powdery tropical fruit aromas with glorious banana highlights in a floral package. Wow...
Palate--fleeting but definite caramel front with solid structure that is integrated with pineapple and citrus with a buttery texture all of which finishes elegantly with long, sweet cream and light tropical fruit.
Okay reality check here--THIS is what wine should be. This wine runs around $13 yet reminds me a bunch of one of (NW's) fave Chards--Rombauer--which costs well over twice as much.
I will be paring this wine with salmon in a lemon-dill cream sauce.
And let me reassure my blog followers that I do not give favorable reviews for a wine simply because it was sent for gratis. If I don't think a wine is decent and well made, I will trash it. Otherwise this blog is worthless. This Central coast Chard is a superior wine and a SUPER value so raise several glasses! Kudos to the folks at Sean Minor!
