I just received my spring wine club shipment from Husch Vineyards. I am not a huge Chardonnay fan, but I do love buttery or creamy Chardonnays. To me they are just as wonderful as a nice Cabernet, a sensual wine to be sipped and thoroughly enjoyed. Finding a good “buttery” Chardonnay these days is not easy. But, the new 2006 Special Reserve Chardonnay from Husch Vineyards is spectacular! It is one of the best, if not THE best buttery Chardonnay I have ever tasted.
I think a seafood pasta dish, like a Fettuccine Alfredo made with Gruyere cheese, shrimp, crab, lobster or all of the above, would be “Heavenly” with this Chardonnay. Or simply some Camembert cheese (a French brie type cheese), a sourdough baguette and a gourmet nut mix (macadamia, cashew and almond) would be wonderful too.[ad#ad-2]
