|Bridlewood Estate Monterey County Chardonnay 2009|
I’ve always enjoyed a nice glass of white wine, especially Chardonnay. It’s always fun to try new white to compliment one of my prepared dishes. This weekend, I decided to make a trip to one of our local liquor stores to find something I haven’t tried yet. It’s easy to get into a rut and keep buying a wine you are familiar with. As I was already marinating my chicken I needed a nice white to compliment.
This time around I chose Bridlewood Estate Monterey County Chardonnay 2009. This beautiful wine is from the Central Coast of California…one of my favorites. In this particular region the grapes have an extra month to mature, giving the grapes more time to relax on the vine. This yields a crisper taste and juicier tropical flavors from pineapples, mango and apples. With a very nice mixture of vanillas and spices.
I found this Bridlewood Chardonnay to be the perfect compliment to my Fiery Texas Tequila Chicken with it’s mango/ginger and habanero glaze.
Lets just say, the bottle was empty by the time dessert finally arrived.
