Bogle Chardonnay review: Which food pairs well with it?
Bogle Chardonnay is a silky full-body oaked Chardonnay.
Classic appetizers are prosciutto Crudo and pumpkin to name some.
Meat wise go for pork, grilled meat, and roast chicken example.
For fish, we recommend tuna, smoked salmon, grilled fish, and crab cakes.
If you are a cheese lover you should try it with cream and triple cream cheeses like Brie and Brillat-Savarin.
Bogle Chardonnay review: What's its alcohol content?
Bogle Chardonnay wine’s alcohol content is 14.5%.
In case you wonder about alcohol content or more precisely Alcohol By Volume, i.e. ABV, measure the alcoholic strength of a drink.
There is a direct relationship between the sugar left in the wine after the alcoholic fermentation has taken place, i.e. Residual Sugar or RS, and ABV.
During alcoholic fermentation, the yeast transforms the sugar in the grape juice into alcohol.
Grapes with high residual sugar will therefore produce dry wine with a high ABV.
How many calories are in a glass of Bogle Chardonnay wine?
According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture  a 5-ounce glass will contain about 120 to 130 calories.
Alcohol contains 7 calories per gram. So a wine with high ABV will have a higher calories per glass than a wine with low ABV.
Furthermore, sugar contributes to the calorie count.
A dry wine will usually have 4 calories per grams vs a sweet wine that will have around 20 calories per grams of carbs, which include sugar.
Since this is an off-dry wine it will have a bit more than 4 calories per grams.
What is Bogle?
Here is an extract from the Bogle bottle itself:
“Though the Bogle family has been farming in the Clarksburg region for six generations, their involvement in the wine business spans back 50 years.
Our family takes great pride in making wines of exceptional character and quality.
From the vineyard to bottle, the highest standards are set, in order to create a wine that over-delivers each and every time.“
This is a silky full-body oaked Chardonnay that for around ~$10 offers a great value for your money.
Pineapple, and apricot jam flavors, with a vanilla, nutmeg, and butterscotch finish will complement many dishes from veggie, pasta, white and red meats, and our beloved cheeses.
Try it with prosciutto Crudo, turkey, roasted vegetables, pork, grilled fish, or Brie cheese and it’ll be a delight. At least it was for me!
