And the wine?
This wine had beautiful minerality on the nose, with stone fruit and incense. Good mouth feel, nice weight. Crisp, peach, pear, and more minerality. I like how this wine tastes and feels. Bright, long mineral finish. With all the heat this summer, this wine is a wonderful summer sipper and drinker. Refreshing. At home we enjoyed with grilled chicken wings and fried rice. You don't need food to enjoy this wine. Even so, it would be great with salad, seafood and the best of friends.
Beautiful Rhone blend wine, my wife and I liked it. Recommended.
