John Turi - Wine, White Wine

Kosta Browne, One Sixteen, Chardonnay, 2009

Wine Rating: 95

Summer is here and with that I can start enjoying the great white wines that have been storing nicely in the wine cellar. I don’t recall when I began the ritual of not drinking white after Labor Day, but I’ve stuck to it for many years now and as such, each new summer look forward to the enjoyment and stirrings of  some beautiful White Ports, Sauvignon Blancs, Rieslings and of course Chardonnays. Throughout the year and from time to time, I do make expectations, when it’s for paired meals and of course for Champagnes that are made from chardonnay grapes. But 90%, if not 95% of my wine consumption consists of reds 9 months out of the year.
