This was the tenth year for this party with friends, though it goes back another twelve years with family. There were two new guests this year and they brought what turned out to be my second favorite wine, a 2013 Cloudy Bay Chardonnay from New Zealand. This was a richer wine in both color and taste but still stayed on the balanced side of things. The fruit was more pronounced and forward than the Chablis and the finish was a bit sweeter and shorter, but it was a very good wine.
