2011 Reserve de la Saurine

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.
