Bob - make sure you get the Grand Estates one....and not the Twin Vines. MUCH better quality!

Name: Woodbridge by Robert Mondavi Chardonnay

Price: $7.99/4 pack

Year: 2008

PHOTO of bottle:


Short intro from the wine maker about the wine:
Woodbridge by Robert Mondavi Chardonnay displays delicious fresh citrus, apple and ripe tropical fruit character, with hints of orange blossom and spice.

Review:
Very pale yellow.

Me ~ I made a squinchy face. This is the wine I usually cook with when I need dry white wine. It's the reason why I've always said I don't like wine. But I do LOVE to cook with this. I can't imagine steamed mussels or clams without it.

Jon ~ smells like fruit juice - not as sour as other chardonnays

Whitney ~ mild not too dry - but drier than she likes

Jeff ~ very smooth - a little fruity

Would you buy again?: Definitely!

Wine Pairing Ideas/Recipes: Steaming mussels or clams, poaching fish or chicken, in sauces & gravies.

Hi guys! This is my first "review"...and I have to admit, I'm kind of a lame reviewer. I drink wine often and have even taken a few classes on it and taken wine tours, but sometimes I can't quite "grab" the right description...so, hopefully I can work on that and get better over time. That said:

name: Yellow Tail (Australia)

price: $5.49

year:2007

[img]http://www.flickr.com/photos/girlichef/3488668651/in/set-72157617430597209/[/img]

intro: The Chardonnay nose leaps from the glass and displays a lovely peachey vanilla and coconut aroma. The wine has a rich creamy toasted finish on the palate whilst being silky and smooth and easy to drink.

review: peachy...almost sour. It is sweet, fruity, crisp and I think it almost tastes bubbly! Has a bit of an unpleasant aftertaste.
buy it again: I was going to say no, but once I tried it with pungent cheese...I decided on yes. I don't want it for sipping, but I do like it paired with powerful food.

Pairing/recipe: Sauteed Feta Cheese (see the recipe at http://girlichef.blogspot.com/2009/04/stinkier-better.html)

I love this experience and think it'll definitely help me refine my wine tasting "skills" Smile

That's a GREAT review!!!

It does get easier to put it into words the more you do it!

I think I know what's wrong with the pic.

It doesn't end in a picture file type. like .jpg

I'm not entirely sure that will work... but maybe?

I played with your pic a lot and couldn't get it to show.... I think it does need a pic file type at the end. But I found a pic online =)

Thanks Marguerite! That is the wine...almost my picture Wink I tried a couple of things, too and cannot get it work from the flickr link...hmmm. Of course, I still can't figure out how to get an avatar on here either, so I may just be hopeless.

Ok... I just tried to put up a pic from my flickr account and it won't go either.

I think it has to end in .jpg or some other picture format.



Yup... it has to do with flickr... not having a picture file extension.

From my Picasa and Photobucket I can get them to work... but from my Flickr.

It might be the same thing for an avatar.
