As most of you know by now, most white wines should no be drank after three years, with some exceptions. I have had some wines by HobNob before, and they haven't let me down, and this chardonnay was no exception to that rule. I drank it along with a sirloin steak that was highly peppered so this was an interesting pairing of the two.

This wine is high in white pepper as well as oak, with a smooth subtle hint of vanilla, much like some great icing. The body is somewhere between medium and high, with it leaning to high. While I drank this warm, I would recommend chilling it.

We believe in finding something that you like the taste of, outside of the basic brands that you have been force-fed over the years through a combination of ethnically targeted advertising, and what people in your family have historically been drinking.
