We recently had a really good Semillon Chardonnay. I was delighted, a bit confused I admit, but really happy. I decided I’d reassess my view of lame Chardonnay blends, give them another go, forget my past disappointments and step forward happily into a new world of taste.
I tried a Lyngrove Chenin Blanc Chardonnay 2007. My old predjudices came flooding back, bland, characterless, dull wine filled my glass and disappointment filled my heart. I will recover, I’ll drink another day. There are plenty more bottles on the shelves.
I had a beer last night to give myself a little time before stepping back out there though.
