Wrath's 2010 Ex Anima Chardonnay is billowing with so much tropical fruit that you half expect Kokomo to start playing on the jukebox the second you uncork it. I swear this wine was a Piña Colada in its past life. But don't worry, this Chard isn't heavy handed or anything of the sort. Wrath treats these estate old-vines with the respect they deserve. And at $23, this wine is a steal. But you'll want to drink this wine within two years of purchasing it.
So if you're tired of covering up cheap champagne with orange juice for your Sunday brunch, enjoy a bottle (or two) of this instead. I suggest a frittata with orange bell peppers, rosemary and brie. Top it with some arugula and pine nuts and you are set.
Wrath is SIP certified like a few of the other wineries we have interviewed, such as Halter Ranch and Ancient Peaks. In fact, one of SIP's founders--Steve McIntyre--is actually Wrath's viticultural consultant. Stay tuned for our feature on Wrath in the coming months.
