I received notice by email this morning that my TIMEkeeper club wine would ship soon and that made me think of this recent wine write-up.
Every month, I pair a wine with a Lepp Farm Market recipe. I chose the following Time Estate wine to complement Lepp's recipe for cream of roasted tomato soup and the write-up was published in the Abbotsford News on September 25.
Unfortunately, I can't find that issue of the paper online (it's not there in the visible eEditions archives), so I can't share either a link or PDF file; however, here is what I wrote...
Time Estate Winery
Okanagan; BC VAQ
On the nose:
Tropical fruit, citrus peel, with sweet floral notes and hints of smoke and vanilla.
On the palate:
Ripe fruit: melon, apple and lime, followed by a whisper of butterscotch and smoke.
This Chardonnay has a nice round buttery mouthfeel countered with a lively acidity, which in my books is a recipe for delicious!
Time Chardonnay will pair well with roasted chicken, a mushroom-and-sage frittata, chicken salad with mango and peach, or with creamy home-crafted tomato soup made with roasted tomatoes and vegetables.
À Votre Santé!
