Easter means spring! And even though the weather has warmed up and most of the snow is gone, on the long walk we took with the dogs today I could have happily worn earmuffs thanks to a strong, cold wind.
Easter also means that we are at our off-site storage location, aka my parents, so though the selection is plenty, it is heavily red and riesling. @WineGuyTO dug around and found a 2007 Flat Rock Twenty Mile Bench Chardonnay that complemented both the fish for Good Friday and the ham for Easter dinner.
The colour was light straw but very buttery, somewhat lighter than what @WineGuyTO was expecting. The nose showed some butter and the evidence of oak barrels. The flavours definitely balanced nicely with some acidity to complement the fruits and alcohol. I found a note of toasted wood on the palate, with a medium finish that was pleasant.
**I have decided to amalgamate all DDTC posts in a monthly post going forward. So stay tuned for the rest of April at the end of the month!
