This Tuesday Tasting (Feb 4) we try 3 unique white blends from 3 very different regions.
- Curator, South Africa – Grown in the arid Swartland of South Africa, this lively blend of Chenin Blanc, Viognier and Chard delivers a surprisingly complex mouthful: crisp green apple, white peach and green grapes are complemented with a touch of exotic spices and minerality. $12 btl, $6 btg
- Murietta’s Well The Whip, California – This big blend from one of the oldest wine estates in sunny Central Cali combines 6 different grapes (Semillion, Chard, Sav Blanc, Orange Muscat, Muscat Canelli, Viognier) into a flavorful punch of juicy fruit flavors: white peach, pear and melon combine with vanilla and hazelnut to create a smooth and layered elegant white. $19 btl, $7 btg
- Guigal Cotes du Rhone Blanc, France – This unique white blend of 6 local grapes (Viognier, Roussanne, Marsanne, Clairette, Bourboulenc and Grenache Blanc) from Rhone’s most famous white wine producer delivers a surprisingly unique mouthful: soft floral notes open into rich spicy flavours combined with fleshy peach and apricot notes. $18 btl, $7 btg
