Heather scored this wine: 91/100
The truth is in the eyes of the beholder. I'm swirling this deep lemon colour Chardonnay in the glass and watching the ever so slow legs catch the light, slowly making their way back to the golden abyss. This white wine is full-bodied and aromatic with familiar California Chardonnay notes of butter, nuts, toast, caramel, apple and tropical fruit. Additionally, I might add a waft of cool, salty Pacific Ocean breeze.
The palate is rich and voluptuous with the above aromas repeated in the mouth. Balanced, cleansing acidity primes the senses for another gulp! There's nothing ABC about this HBO #GOT white wine.
A little pricey at $30 but worth the splurge for the final season.
Paired well with Season 8, Episode 3 watch party.
Other pairing suggestions: Little chicken fingers, John Snow king crab legs, dragon egg salad sandwiches, and your own Game of Thrones watch party.
