So a couple posts ago, I mentioned that I had joined the Clever Girls Collective and that occasionally I would be blogging something for them. This would be one of those times… but, it’s for wine. How can I not??

If you’ve ever ordered wine online, you know that shipping costs can be prohibitive.

  • From now through the end of May, order 3 or more bottles of Tough Day Chardonnay and receive free shipping! (That’s such a big deal, they’ve never offered it before.)
  • Order by close of business tomorrow, Wednesday, May 5 and receive your Tough Day Chardonnay in time for Mother’s Day!
  • 2009 Mira Luna, Tough Day Chardonnay, from Sonoma Carneros, California: 91 Points ~ $17.99/bottle

About This Clever Wine

2009 Mira Luna, Tough Day Chardonnay, from Sonoma Carneros, California: 91 Points

This is not your average, grocery store California Chardonnay…not that there’s anything wrong with that.  But Tough Day Chardonnay is a delightful, summery, crisp white wine that scored 91 Points and took Silver at the World Wine Championship. Unlike super buttery, super oaky Chardonnays, Tough Day Chardonnay has “floral notes with aromas of golden delicious apples and bright tropical fruits entice the nose. Apples and more tropical fruit elements bathe the palate alongside mango and kiwi flavors. Even more rich and vibrant than you’d expect from Carneros, California’s great Burgundian varietal area.”

Bottom line: It’s a great, light sipping wine. Perfect for a Mother’s Day brunch with family. Or a Twitter party by yourself. Whichever.

While my bank account is looking pretty low right now, and the fact that my mom doesn’t drink at all (maybe a sip from my glass every once in a blue moon), I won’t be picking any up for Mother’s Day – but I will be stocking up on some of this later in the month! Oh, and if you get your order in by tomorrow, you’ll get the wine in time for Mother’s Day – not bad, especially if your mom appreciates a good wine. While oak-y Chardonnay’s aren’t my usual go to (I’m more of a Savignon Blanc and Viognier girl), this sounds too delicious to pass up. Go, order now! 🙂
