This highly aromatic, crisp white blend from Cotes de Gascogne is pretty much unbeatable at its humble price. If you love New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc this is THE gateway to Old World whites in the same style. This wine is bright and lush and so filled with salty red grapefruit I was reminded of the best Salty Dog cocktails that I was fixated with for a brief moment in time. 70% Colombard, 15% Gros-Manseng, and 15% Ugni Blanc this wine comes in at only 12% and punches way above its price point. Great as an aperitif, this wine would also be great as an addition to bright Spring dishes, and with the screw top, it's begging for a road trip to the beach.
