There is always a recommendation for chilling wine. The problem is, many people have trouble keeping up with all of these recommendations!
There are many ways that you can easily keep track of how you should serve wine. The most important thing to remember is when you should be chilling the wine.
If you are hosting a wine tasting or gathering, you might want to consider some of these suggestions, which may vary depending upon what you serve.
If you are setting up a wet bar in your home, or just enjoy entertaining company over cocktails, then one of the things you should consider is which bar tools and accessories you need to own.
A few nights back the "Chardonnay Queen" prepared her famous Shrimp Scampi for us, and we opened a bottle of the 2012 Waterstone Sauvignon Blanc from Napa Valley to further enhance this wonderful meal. It was a good choice! The Waterstone is actually a blend of 82% Sauvignon Blanc and 18% Semillon, which gives it a little of the character of a white Bordeaux.
The nose is refreshing with a suggestion of citrus and herbs. On the palate the wine has the presence of apple, melon, and a little taste of lemon zest. There is also a mild flirtation with grapefruit, without any tart undertones. The finish is crisp and clean, with a hint of mineral in the background, but very little lingering aftertaste. The alcohol content is 13.7%.
This wine would pair well with most seafood dishes, and would be a good accompaniment to most summer salads. Norm's score is 87.
Do you have a friend who loves to entertain, but would scoff at most home-decorating related gifts? Is he "too tough" to wash the dishes, but collects shot glasses with enthusiasm?
There are ways to personalize virtually any item a person has. Decals and bumper stickers as well as seat covers allow you to accessorize your vehicle. Jewelry allows you to accessorize and personalize your wardrobe.
Wine charms are a lovely addition that can satiate the collector in many of us, but also adds a bit of aesthetically pleasing flair to your guests' wine glasses.
