Rich, indulgent and lavish are words often used to describe Californian Chardonnay, and here’s a winery proudly displaying them on its gold-coloured label. The colour associated with Chardonnay. Turning to the back label, the theme goes on with – ‘life of luxury is yours for the sipping with Menage a Trois Gold, our extravagant, indulgent Chardonnay’. You don’t often find me quoting the marketing department of wineries, BUT they got the descriptions right this time. I realize that this style of wine is out of fashion, but there’s no denying its luxurious feeling. Expensive seafood in butter would complete the extravagance. Dying your hair blond, and sporting a gold Rolex would also suit the occasion.
