Wine Review Wednesday


Brys Estate 2010 Artisan Chardonnay

Is it possible to fall in love with a wine? If so, I just did. Winemaker Coenraad Stassen said “I wanted to see what could be done with this grape from this land.” The result is this BIG, complex and layered Chardonnay that’s a wonderful chewy mouthful. What does it pair well with? Brys Estate will say, rich poultry dishes, creamy soups, seafood and salads. I say… friends, a deck, a couch, the beach or a fireplace. It’s a limited production and a splurge, but well, well worth every sip. Cheers!
