Day 154-Peachard for $13.99 by the Village Vintner in Carpentersville, Il
We are guessing this peach wine is blended with Chardonnay, hence the name Peachard. I don't like Chardonnay, but I really like Peaches, and have tried the Lynfred Peach wine previously and really liked it, so we bought this wine and kept our fingers crossed. I was not disappointed, and either was my better half who does not care for eating peaches, but has taken a liking for peach wine. This wine is crisp, not overly sweet with great peach flavor. This wine, similar to Melon Delight is a great summer wine. We drank this wine without food, but this would make a great brunch wine, bridal shower, and baby shower wine. I would recommend this wine to anyone actually, people who say they don't like sweet wines, this is not a sweet wine, it is a fruit wine, and when you drink a Viognier which generally smells of peaches, but only tastes a bit like peaches, you may buy. Generally speaking if you like a Viognier, you will like this wine. But anyone who likes peaches or even the smell of peaches should try this wine.
