Weekly Wednesday Wine Committee. Incredible hosting by Joe. 1 sparkler, 3 whites, 4 reds, 1 dessert wine, all tasted blind.

This is the white wine that changed the most from start to finish. It slowly revealed oak, especially a heavy “toast” note to it. With no idea what to call it, I guessed Australian chardonnay. Sweet oak (definitely not too much), round mouthfeel, and honeyed cashews. This deserves to be served alone to be fully appreciated.
