Our annual Oscar party, which we pair with a signature red carpet cocktail, was a hit, and so was the cocktail, but after we finished a bottle of Bulleit bourbon, we moved on to the liquid treats brought by our guests.
One such gift, was a bottle of 2012 Moderna Chardonnay. It was a light, peachy sweet wine.
Not my favorite, but it improved when jokes from Ellen DeGeneres, whom I like to call Duchess D, kept my mind off the sugary flavors.
I don’t think I’d purchase this wine on my own, but if you like saccharine white Chardonnays this is up your alley.
Nuts & Bolts:
- Winery: Moderna
- Type: White blend
- Origin: California
- Vintage: 2012
- Price: gift
- Alcohol content: 11.5%
- When to drink: Cougars who enjoy sweet white wine will enjoy this libation with a side of gossip.
And if you’re wondering what that delicious cocktail had in it, here’s how I made it:
1) Place two to three thawed frozen strawberries (depending on size) in a fancy glass with two to three ice cubes.
