Simple Life Chardonnay (California 2009)

I picked this bottle for the label. No surprise there. Look at it – it’s beautiful. Simple. Evocative. Makes you want to pour a glass and sit on your back porch to watch the sunset. Which is what we did. And it was totally worth it.

Sunny yellow in the glass, this chardonnay was inviting with fragrances of butter, cream, and agapanthus. And it was lightly floral with flavors of white grapes, green apples, and fresh-cut grass. It really tasted like summer-time in the glass and was so easy to drink. It’s one of the best sub-$10 Chards I’ve tried. I loved it and ended up buying it all summer long.

You can find it at your local grocer for around $8, and if you’re in Texas, HEB has had it on sale for around $7. A great deal for a lovely white wine.

    Agapanthus? I totally thought you made that up. But with the wonder of Google found it is “the only genus in the subfamily Agapanthoideae of the flowering plant family Amaryllidaceae. The family is in the monocot order Asparagales.”
    So I could be all “Oh that! Ahhh.”

      Yeah, crazy, right? Agapanthus grows all over the place in California, and it’s a fragrance I’ve never smelled anywhere else. Something unique and beautiful about it.
