wine wednesday
This week it is all about retro fun.

A wine recommendation under £10 every Wednesday – except the last of the month which is a payday splurge.

Not a day goes by, literally, without it being the ‘National Day’ of something. 99% of them are somewhat questionable, but I have say I like the ridiculousness of it.

I’m not the first person to reiterate the idea that life would be boring if were all the same. If you aren’t hurting anyone then go for it – have your fun; after all that’s what this website is all about – bonheur living!

With that said then, this Sunday is National Retro Day and it just so happens the 90s cult classic Clueless is also being shown on Channel 5.

So, what better wine to pick this week than another 90s stalwart – Chardonnay, catapulted into the mainstream consciousness by Bridget Jones.

Petaluma White Label Chardonnay 2017, Waitrose – £16 Buy

Like a put down from Amber, this wine starts with tangy acidity on the tip of the tongue but quickly mellows to a reveal white peach and melon flavours. Finishing with a light creamy finish, this is a classy oaked Chardonnay worthy of Cher herself.
