Mirassou Vineyards Chardonnay Monterey County 2005
I'm not a big fan of white wines or wine from California in general. I got this originally because the Mirassou owner was autographing bottles where I just happened to be shopping. Surprisingly I really enjoyed this wine. If you drink red wine this wine will do if you must break open a bottle of white.Add winemaker's notes

RiceSelect's fragrant Jasmati® is blended with eggs, milk and fall's favorite spices, cinnamon and nutmeg, to create a delicious rice pudding, which is layered on top of fluffy cream cheese and abuttery pecan crust. Pairs well with a bold, tawny port with flavors of dried fruits, nuts, and spices.

External Reviews for Mirassou Vineyards Chardonnay Monterey County
Wine Tasting NotesOur Mirassou Central Coast Chardonnay is distinctly soft and approachable yet crisp and fruit-forward. The wine displays intense fruit flavors of citrus, green apple and tree fruits such as pear and peach which are enhanced by subtle creamy and slightly toasty characters as a result of partial aging in oak barrels. Crisp and delicately structured, as a result of the cooler but sunny growing conditions that provide naturally firm acid levels, this wine is extremely food friendly.
