13.5% abv. A white Cotes du Rhone.
80% Grenache Blanc; 20% Bourboulenc
Nice pale gold color with transparency.
Dry wine with a hint of ginger--makes me think of a flat ginger ale although it is better than that sounds. Somewhat lacking in interest on its own although a stony mineral quality comes through. I wonder what food pairing would bring out its best--maybe an Italian hard cheese like Pecorino or an Alsatian onion tart? Overall, despite its name on the label, not "Sensational" but a decent food wine. Sells for under $15 usually.

Sounds interesting. Cool whites are refreshing in this intense heat!

What heat? Had to put on my sweat suit this morn before punishing my bod for my past transgressions. WW
