Wine Wednesdays - 2015 Pfaffl Rossern Grand Reserve Chardonnay

It's become tradition that my man cooks lobster for Valentine's dinner and he really outdid himself this year!  Lobster tacos with homemade corn tortillas, seriously heaven! 


Paired with this delicious Chardonnay that we brought back from our trip to Austria, what a perfect match!  I fell in love with Pfaffl not only because of their amazing wines but because it's run by second-generation brother/sister duo Heidi and Roman and they inspired me with serious goals for my wine project with my brother.    


I think Roman says it best right on the back of the wine label, "This is a favored child for me.  Stirred, not shaken - the lees that is!  Weekly for an entire year.  You can smell and taste it".  Aging on the lees with weekly batonnage gives the wine its rich, creamy flavor profile.  Aging for 18 months in oak also increases the depth of flavor and concentration of this wine, but it's buttery without being oakey, so so good with lobster!
