Wine Review: Tatu Estates Orange Muscat

By Mike Thayer

Wine Shop at Home AwardsI joined a wine club a few months back and I am SO glad I did!  Thank you Lori!  Shopping online at my leisure in the comfort of my own home, discovering new and exclusive wines and having them shipped directly to my door = Happiness in Every Sip.  I borrowed that line from WineShop at Home, the club I joined, it's a true statement.  

WineShop At Home, founded in 2005, is headquartered in the legendary Napa Valley. The winery, owned by the Fredrick family of Dallas, Texas, produces award-winning, exclusive, artisan wines across 50 brands.  Their wines have won over 200 awards in national and international wine competions!  And they've got everything to please any wine preference, choose from sweet and bubbly to dry and crisp whites, smooth and supple to bold and intense reds.   WineShop at Home features artisan wines for every occasion, palate and personality.

In my monthly shipment I get four bottles of fantastic wine - I've NEVER been disappointed -  two whites and two reds and a recent shipment included another REALLY NICE sweet white.   Here's the description from the WineShop at Home website:

Tatu Estates Orange MuscatOrange Muscat is one of the forty siblings in the Muscat family.

As you would expect, citrus dominates in the mouth. These are natural esters formed during fermentation. Tatu Estates 2019 Orange Muscat also showcases some floral fragrances, like daffodil and rose in the attack. The aromatic palate quickly extends to lime, lemon, apple and pear. Toward the end, stonefruit characters like nectarine and peach appear. There is a clear sweetness in the attack and a round mouthfeel. This wine is refreshing with a crisp acidity. This Orange Muscat has good length and overall, is very easy and pleasant to enjoy.

Hints of mandarin and orange in the finish will pair well with egg bites, pasta with seafood or light desserts.

If you like Moscato wines, you'll LOVE this Orange Muscat!  It truly is VERY easy to enjoy, be it a stand alone glass or paired with seafood or light desserts.  You get all those fruit notes and that refreshing, crisp sweetness in every sip.  My Ladyfriend and I enjoyed this wine so much, I've already ordered more. There was no dwelling at all on this one, as in, "Hmmmm, what should I get?"....  It's most definitely a REPEAT BUY!

Palate pleasing, the Tatu Estates Orange Muscat is another MUST TRY from WineShop at Home and I'm giving it 5 out of 5 Bachelor on the Cheap stars.  It's a FANTASTIC sweet white!

Wine Review: Suburban Fracas Melee

By Mike Thayer

In my monthly shipment I get four bottles of fantastic wine - I've NEVER been disappointed -  two whites and two reds and a recent shipment included a REALLY NICE sweet white.   Here's the description from the WineShop at Home website:

Surburban Fracas MeleeOur Suburban Fracas Melee is a sweet white wine blend made from a clash of 75% Sauvignon Blanc, 22% Symphony and 3% Muscat of Alexandria.

It is not often that Sauvignon Blanc encounters Symphony. The result is a turbulent, flavorful wine displaying aromas of pear, apple and grapefruit. The fragrances are very intense in the most revealing way possible. There are also mineral undertones that lead to a bright finish. The sweetness coats the mouth for a rich mid-palate and flavorful finish. Intense fruit notes are also present in the mouthfeel with pineapple, lychee and some bergamot candy characteristics.

Enjoy this sweet Melee with a cheese platter, sweet and sour pork, pasta with seafood or light desserts. 

WineShop at Home never ceases to amaze me with how good their wines truly are.  You know how sometimes you go to the liquor store, select a bottle of wine, something you've never had before and after having a glass determine you wouldn't buy it again?  There's no buyer's remorse with WineShop at Home and this sweet Melee really delivers on the flavor!  Like their other blends, this wine is yet another example of what puts WineShop at Home over the top and a big notch above their competitors - THEIR WINE BLENDS ROCK! The wine maker, Alexandre Reble, knows how to blend grapes like no other! He truly is a master and his wine creations in my humble opinion are second to none. I've been a Wine Club member with WineShop for several months now, and I have NOT had a bottle of wine I wouldn't re-order. My Ladyfriend and I enjoyed this fantastic sweet white blend with a simple, light dessert of vanilla ice cream topped with some fruit and it was STELLAR!

Palate pleasing, the Suburban Fracas Melee is another MUST TRY from WineShop at Home and I'm giving it 5 out of 5 Bachelor on the Cheap stars.  It's a FANTASTIC sweet white!

Wine Review: Albion Chardonnay

In my monthly shipment I get four bottles of fantastic wine - I've NEVER been disappointed -  two whites and two reds and a recent shipment included a REALLY good Chardonnay from the Albion label.  Here's the description from the WineShop at Home website:

 

Albion ChardonnayThis 2019 Albion Chardonnay was made from a single vineyard located in the northwest area of Lodi.

The terroir has lower fertility and ideal winegrowing soils, ranging from heavier clay-based soils to well-drained stony soils. This stainless steel tank-aged Chardonnay received a precise oak treatment to enhance its flavors and its ageing potential. Aged on its own lees for six months, this wine has a powerful, rich nose offering citrus and fruit characters like lemon, grapefruit, lime, apricot and pear. The oak addition brings notes of fresh meringue, tobacco leaves and crème caramel. The sur lies method enhances the mouthfeel with a round attack, length and a medium to intense finish. Along with some minerality, a nice hint of acidity perks up at the very end.

Enjoy it with grilled fish, scallops, or a cheese platter.

The grapes for this wine are grown in the Lodi wine region, which is located 100 miles east of San Franciso near the San Joaquin River Delta.  A major winegrape growing region since the 1850's, annual yields from Lodi comprises 20% of California's total wine grape production, more than Napa Valley and Sonoma Valley.  In other words, when you're drinking a wine made with Lodi grapes, it's no ordinary wine!

My Ladyfriend and I enjoyed this wine with some Asian Chicken topped with a Vanilla Apricot Sauce and that pairing made for a phenomenal meal!  The fruity characters of the wine was a PERFECT match with the chicken and that sauce - it was another dose of YUM!

Palate pleasing, the Albion Chardonnay from Lodi is another MUST TRY from WineShop at Home and I'm giving it 5 out of 5 Bachelor on the Cheap stars.  It's a FANTASTIC Chardonnay!

Fact ChardonnayOur Fact 2017 Chardonnay offers fragrant aromatics of pear, apple and lemon in the attack.

Oak characters, notes of brown sugar and cider follow. This is quite a display for this Californian Chardonnay. These characteristics also appear in the mouth, making it very luscious and full. This wine is round with a hint of minerality. It is very smooth and compact in the mid-palate and the oak flavors caress the palate all the way to the finish.

Serve it chilled at around 50° Fahrenheit with creamy pasta, rice dishes, seafood, grilled fish or a cheese platter.

That description is spot on!  A good Chardonnay delivers on all those aromatic and flavor notes and what Fact has bottled deserves to be on your table. My girlfriend and I enjoyed this wine with some tasty shrimp and coconut rice, an excellent pairing!  WineShop at Home has a true knack for blending grapes and crafting wines with fantastic, intense flavors!

Winner, Winner, Pork Belly Sandwich Dinner at Prost!

By Mike Thayer

Prost Pork BellyThe chefs at Prost have come up with yet another winner, winner, special sandwich dinner!

Called “Der Anton” it’s a FANTASTIC sandwich featuring pork belly, built on a hoagie bun topped with mayo, arugula, a homemade rhubarb chutney and a spicy chili sauce.  Served with Prost's OUTSTANDING fries and a pasta salad, this meal totally shoots past the high mark on the satisfaction meter.

Inspiration leads to creation

What makes this sandwich extra special is that it was inspired by the late celebrity chef Anthony Bordain and his love for pork belly.  What Prost has done here in honoring him has resulted in the creation of a sandwich Masterpiece!  The pork belly - the most deliciously tempting pork-related item known to man, as Bordain might say - was prepared perfectly, and that spicy chili sauce combined with that rhubarb chutney just puts this sandwich over the top!  Those ingredients alone put on a piece of cardboard would taste great!  Balancing out the spicy/sweet notes is that cooling pasta salad and did I mention how OUTSTANDING Prost fries are?

Prost Pork Belly2
Mmmmmm, pork belly... and that sauce!  It's another dose of YUM!

The Prost kitchen continues to raise the bar in pairing GREAT flavors together!  The "Der Anton" needs to be made a permanent menu item and that spicy chili sauce/rhubard chutney deserves to be bottled that's how good it is!   This sandwich special gets 5 out of 5 stars, it's another dose of YUM and a MUST try!

Prost is located at:  2721 E. Central Ave., #101, Wichita, KS. 67214

Food Review: Chick-fil-A's Spicy Chicken Sandwich

By Mike Thayer

Chick-fil-A Spicy Chicken SandwichHaving lunch on the company dime the other day, a co-worker and I opted for Chick-fil-A, targeting a craving for a spicy chicken sandwich.

I've never had the Chick-fil-A version of a spicy chicken sandwich before and with the fast food chicken sandwich wars still going on, I was looking forward to sampling it.

Here's the description of the sandwich from the restaurant website:  A boneless breast of chicken seasoned with a spicy blend of peppers, hand-breaded, pressure cooked in 100% refined peanut oil and served on a toasted, buttered bun with dill pickle chips.

Basically, it's the Chick-fil-A classic chicken sandwich with some spice.  There's also a deluxe version of the Spicy Chicken sandwich available, which includes Green Leaf lettuce, tomato and Pepper Jack Cheese.

Our order was placed with Uber Eats, but they failed to show up at delivery time, we waited a bit longer....  Then the money spent for the lunch shows up as refunded!  Thanks for nothing Uber Eats!  Leaving us hanging and hungry, oh well, the failure of Uber Eats is a story for another day.

Chick-fil-A Spicy Chicken Sandwich pickle shotBack to the sandwich!

With my co-worker put into action as pick up and delivery service, we sat down to enjoy our meal.

I took that first bite.  It's a good sandwich, got a bit of the crunch from the breading, the toasted, buttered bun delivered on flavor, the pickles provided that little tart twang you're looking for, but that chicken....  I have to say I was a bit disappointed, there wasn't enough kick!  The chicken came up lacking in the spicy blend of peppers department, under-spiced I'd have to say. 

The Spicy Chicken sandwich I ordered cost $3.99 and I had buyer's remorse.  I should have gotten the Deluxe version, having that Pepper Jack Cheese, lettuce and tomato would have made for a better sandwich.  The Pepper Jack is needed to carry the spice note to a higher level.  The Deluxe doesn't cost that much more at just $4.69.

Chick-fil-A Spicy Chicken Sandwich honey mustard shotI'm giving the Chick-fil-A Spicy Chicken sandwich just 3 out of 5 Bachelor on the Cheap stars.  Even topped with the honey mustard, this sandwich was just "eh"......  I thoroughly enjoyed the waffle fries, I love those things!

3 stars

Included in my last shipment was a white wine called "Symphony" and it truly is a symphony of great flavors!  Here's the description from the WineShop at Home website:

Cloud Symphony WineOur 2019 Cloud Symphony was produced in the Lodi region. This young vibrant 2019 vintage wine has a yellow straw color and a seductive nose.

A bouquet of aromas are represented, like citrus with grapefruit and orange blossom, fruit with apple and pear and floral with honeysuckle. This nose is characteristic of Symphony which was derived from Muscat and Grenache Gris. This is an off-dry white wine with a round fruity attack. There are mango, apricot and pear flavors appearing in the mouthfeel. There is sweetness, but that is not the main feature of this wine. There is also pronounced minerality which is a signature of this grape varietal.

This delectable well-balanced wine would pair well with spicy Indian or Thai curry-based dishes or savory pastries.

The winemaker at WineShop at Home has a true knack for blending grapes and crafting wines with fantastic, intense flavors.  This white is no exception.  Symphony is well rounded, it's smooth in a stand alone glass, it's smooth with a meal, it's smooth with dessert and that versatility is what makes this a 'go-to' wine for just about any occasion.  

Palate pleasing, the Cloud Symphony is another MUST TRY and I'm giving it 5 out of 5 Bachelor on the Cheap stars.

Prost cranks out another stellar monthly special

By Mike Thayer

July Special at Prost
Does that look fantastic or what?

Prost never fails to craft great food, period.  The monthly special for July is no exception, it's a Döner Teller that just dances on the tongue! 

What is a Döner Teller you ask?  It's marinaded and seared pork strips, served with red and white cabbage salad, fries, garlic sauce and veggies.

The Teller is OUTSTANDING!

The marinade and searing of the pork delivers a tremendous, juicy depth of flavor, the garlic sauce is another dose of YUM, the fries are seasoned perfectly (and great dipped in that garlic sauce, no ketchup required or desired) and the cabbage salad along with the veggies are refreshing.  This is a superbly balanced meal and VERY satisfying.  And here's a key tip provided by the server, the perfect mouthful is getting a little bit of every ingredient on the fork and dipped in that garlic sauce.  My server was absolutely correct!  Thank you Ken!

My meal was complimented with a cold Ayinger Pilsner, served by the best bartender in town.  Nobody pours a beer better than Lori!  And yes, I had more than one Ayinger.....

I highly recommend the July Special at Prost and the Ayinger Pilsner, they're both winners and get 5 out of 5 stars.  Don't miss out on this winning combination!

5 stars

In addition to a stellar dine in experience, Prost also has carry out and delivery, call the restaurant at 260-3220.
