Thanksgiving weekend was full of good wine – chosen for me by the owner of our local wine shop. I stopped by the shop the evening before Thanksgiving, and had him pick out an assorted case of reasonably prices wines. And none of them, so far, have disappointed. Unfortunately, some went so quickly at our family gathering that I didn’t catch a photo, didn’t get a taste, and I don’t even remember what they were!
Tonight I am enjoying a French Grenache Blanc, a white wine with flavors of pineapple, lychee and apricot, with a bit of minerality. It has a velvety mouth feel. It wasn’t chilled when I pulled it from the wine rack, and I actually think it was better that way, with the higher temperature of the wine releasing more of the flavors and aromas.
I could really find much about it online, so you’ll just have to take my word for it that it is a nice, everyday white. Happy Monday!
