Roshambo 2004 “Rock Paper Scissors” Chardonnay

29 April 2007

Dinner tonight was a collaboration: pork chops brined with apple cider vinegar and braised in white wine with a white wine reduction (by C.), skillet-roasted Yukon Gold potatoes with thyme, and Brussels sprouts braised with a little water and then sauteéd with toasted pine nuts and minced garlic (by me).

C. opened the Roshambo 2004 Rock Paper Scissors white for the pork braise and reduction, and the rest of the bottle was a perfect accompaniment to both cooking the dinner and eating it. This is an inexpensive table wine that’s great with food – medium-bodied, crisp and accessible, with not too much oak (the way I like my Chardonnays!) and a silky texture. My favorite nuance in this one was green apple. All in all, not a very complex wine, but definitely enjoyable.

    Fantastic recipe there – the age old mix of pork and apple – I can smell the aroma wafting over here.
