This week and the very first week of my wine journey, I am trying a white wine called Angel Food. Here are some fast facts on the wine:
Variety: Chardonnay, Viognier and others.
Country: United States of America
Review From Vineyard: “Our Angel Food is a luscious, aromatic white blend made from premium grapes from our sun-drenched vineyards in California. Delightfully reminiscent of Angel Food cake, this wine has flavors of Granny Smith apple, vanilla bean and toasted coconut that culminate in a creamy mouthfeel. Enjoy with spicy Buffalo wings, chicken quesadillas or caramel popcorn on your next movie night.”
Personally, I am a huge fan of sweet white wines. I had not tried Angel Food before this week, but I have had other Cupcake Vineyards wine and I am a huge fan of their sweet white wines. I chilled the wine overnight in my refrigerator and then I cracked open the bottle with my roommate the next night.
At first smell, I could smell the sweet aroma of this wine. However, when I took my first sip, it was more bitter than I expected a sweet white wine to be. At first sip, it was not my favorite, but after moving on to my second glass I started liking it and getting used to the taste. I ended up really liking it and drinking it again the next night.
One wine down and thousands of more to go!
