Welcome to my page, where I explore the Fruits and the Spirits! I am a very beginner taster, trying to find and remember the wines and beers I try and like. I am not the hoity-toity connoisseur, and I usually only buy the cheap stuff. If you have any suggestions that I should try, feel free to leave a comment!

Cupcake Chardonnay

I have had a few people recommend this one to me, so I finally broke down and tried it. (Besides, it was on sale). Lately I have been in more of a red wine phase, so I wasn't really sure if I would like it. Trying it, though, I was very pleased. For a chardonnay, it is pretty sweet. It isn't quite Riesling sweet, but has a good balance. It might be due to the power of suggestion, but I swear I taste a hint of vanilla frosting. On the swallow there is the characteristic bite of a white wine, but it is not sharp or overpowering. This would make a fantastic desert wine, perhaps paired with some cupcakes. :)
