How utterly good does this combo sound. Snake + Herring 2017 ‘Tough Love’ Chardonnay from WA and Pickled Rainbow Trout.
I received this bottle in my recent sample pack from Wine Selectors (thank you!!) which is part of their Chef & The Cellar 2020 Calendar Collection. You get 12 wines + a calendar with 12 matching recipes inside. It’s a wine and food lovers heaven.
- Wild fermentation
- Barrel & tank fermentation
- Aged on lees
All the above make for a really yummy wine from its yellow-good shade in the glass to the vanillin oak, spiced grapefruit and nectarines coming through on the nose. In the mouth it’s creamy and bright with wonderful fruit acidity and a bitter sweet limey grapefruit finish.
This wine was sent to me as a sample, I was under no obligation to post about it.
All opinions are based on my own taste buds. Wine is subjective & always evolving, so make sure you drink what you enjoy!
