Wine Review: Mount Macleod Chardonnay 2010 ($17.99, Dan Murphy’s)

Second of the three Chardonnays we’ll be tasting side by side as we compare the different styles of wine this grape can produce.

Here’s a recipe from Hawaii for the crispy skinned salmon.  For a more delicate finish to the fish, don’t flip it – just put a lid on the pan for a few minutes to ensure it’s cooked but still opaque in the middle.

Wine Review: Simonnet-Febvre Petit Chablis 2011 ($16.99, Dan Murphy’s)

Wine reviews weren’t really the reason for starting this blog, I’m really too lazy for all that.

That said, if we’re going to contrast three different versions of all these grape varieties, it would be folly not to put the tasting notes into print for each…

Maggie Beer’s cucumber gazpacho would be a great pair for this wine.
