9/11 MEMORIAL Commemorative Chardonnay

Thank you to Annie, who was kind enough to pass on this 9/11 tribute wine. She shared the following link:

Of course, I had to add these examples from Lieb Cellars to my collection. These are typical examples of other consumer goods offering a donation from each sale. It is always interesting when the pricing and donation is a variation of 9/11. The September Mission Merlot is offered at a price of $9.11 with a donation of $0.911 going towards a September 11th fund. Below is more information about the two different wines

This wine was produced to commemorate the 10th anniversary of 9/11 and the opening of the 9/11 Memorial. Lieb Cellars has been a proud supporter of the 9/11 Memorial since 2004 through the SEPTEMBER'S MISSION FOUNDATION, and is honored to produce this wine for the National September 11 Memorial and Museum. Lieb Cellars is making a donation from sales of this wine to the 9/11 Memorial, to honor and remember the victims of the terror attacks at the World Trade Center, the Pentagon, and near Shanksville, PA.

About the wine: From the excellent 2010 harvest, we have produced a very limited amount of this wine (247 cases). This wine was fermented in stainless steel and then a portion aged in French oak. The wine displays a soft straw-yellow color, which will golden with maturation. The dominant flavors are reminiscent of fresh green apples with underlying hints of tropical citrus and pineapples. The wine finishes with a toasty vanilla flavor on the palate.

New Vintage. This limited production wine is dedicated to honoring the memory of those lost on September 11, 2001. Lieb Cellars is proud to assist the September’s Mission Foundation in its fund-raising program, the “9/11 Campaign”. For each bottle purchased Lieb Cellars donates 91.1 cents to the fund, which provides educational and cultural programs to remember the victims of 9/11 and to fund the 9/11 Living Memorial Project.

Tasting Notes: Dark fruit notes are accented by hints of vanilla and smoke and white pepper. With mild oak aging and tannins that will soften with age, this is an excellent red table wine that can be cellared or enjoyed today. Pair this wine with pork chop, roast, or loin (with herbs, wine/brown sauce, or breaded
