Something new that came in the Pinehurst Wine $100 case. It’s a pretty simple country wine, but interesting and very good!
2011 Reserve de la Saurine
Appellation: Gard (Vin de Pays d’Oc)
Notes: 100% Grenache Blanc, 12% ABV. Grenache Blanc is usually blended, so this is something I’m not sure I’ve ever had. Tropical nose, a little tight. Tropical fruit and lots of citrus (oranges, lemons, limes). Not much acidity, but a nice weight. Coates the mouth, very elegant. There’s a lot going on. Normally, a lower acid wine will not be a great food wine, but this went well with a simple salmon dish. I recommend searching this one out. Very Good.
Price: Unknown, but probably under $15.
