Creamy Wine Reviews
I drank these 6 wines and tasted apple, aromatic, butterscotch, cinnamon, creamy, floral, ginger cookies, honey, marmalade, pear. The wines are dessert wine, grand cru, grower, lutte raisonee, my favorites, small production, sur lies, unoaked and came from a variety of sources, including wine clubs, wineries, and wine stores.

From the moment we opened this bottle containing orange-colored and even orange-smelling wine (not the same as the “orange wine” fad), I knew we were in for something different.
Tasting notes: creamy, marmalade, butterscotch, honey
The nose was subtle ginger cookies and cinnamon. It was mild and balanced, creamy in the mid-palate with notes of apple and pear as it reached the back of my mouth. I enjoyed the mysteriously long finish, of depth and complexity.
Tasting notes: ginger cookies, cinnamon, creamy, apple, pear
Wines, like this one, matured sur lie (on the lees) are always the most interesting to drink — aromatic, complex fruit combinations, strong floral notes, with incredibly long and creamy finishes.
Tasting notes: aromatic, floral, creamy
A beautiful expression of Central Coast Chardonnay which went easy on the winemaking to let the Chardonnay’s bright fruitiness shine on its own.
Tasting notes: creamy, fruity, bright
Barrel fermented for eight months, this Chardonnay was not super oaky. Signature apple and pear flavors harmonized with a touch of creaminess.
Tasting notes: apple, pear, creamy, light oak
I found the nose was predominantly apple and pear, with something I identified as baked brie in the mix. It was a bit tart and it had “edges.” There was a sharpness to the way it moved through my mouth that wasn’t just about the bubbles.
Tasting notes: apple, pear, creamy, tart
Notice: I hold no formal wine credentials. I am a wine geek who has consumed 1000+ of bottles from 100+ different wine clubs and 1000s more bottles that didn’t come from those wine clubs. I do not accept payment for wine reviews, and I do not accept payments to influence my opinions. I happily accept free wine (and I buy wine).
Why read my wine reviews: Wine taste is subjective. What I like may not be what you like. I try to leave room for you to form your own opinions, so I don’t provide a score or a rating. I do point out wines that are an incredible value or truly not worth the money. I note flaws, wines that don’t have typicity (because this matters if you are buying wine without having tasted it yourself), when wines are out of balance, and when wines lack appropriate body.
I don’t like wasting money (or anything for that matter). I’m careful about where I spend my money and my mindset as a reviewer is to be careful about where you spend yours. I don’t believe a high price tag equals quality and I know for sure there are wines of very good quality that are also a great value.
