Happy Hump Day!

Ok, so the Subject Line here may be a little bit of hyperbole...but not by much.  Sometimes I see people get tied into habits of drinking the same types of things over and over.  Whether it be Chardonnay, or Sauvignon Blanc, or another varietal.  Well this beauty is a most intriguing blend of Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, & Riesling.  

Usually, the most commonly thought of grape for white wine in Italy is Pinot Grigio.  However, there are a plethora of other varietals completing some amazing wines in Italy.  Among those, and especially in Piedmont, are Chardonnay & Riesling.  Now these may be different styles than you're used to, but when they come together in some white wine from Piedmont, they can create some fantastic wines.  

I highly encourage you to grab some of these.  Whether it stays incredibly hot, or gives us a much needed respite, this wine will still fit the occasion.  Come grab some today.

Cheers!

Ben's Tasting Notes:
"What a unique blend of Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, & Riesling.  Don't let the last grape variety throw you off, this is a completely dry wine.  The Riesling really does come through on the nose though, with some delightful floral aromatics as well as a little bit of baking spices.  Forget everything you've ever known about Chardonnay when it comes to this wine.  There's no butter or oak or anything like that here.  On this wine the grape adds purity, vibrant citrus, and a mouthful of minerality leaving mouthwatering acidity making you beg for another sip.  The Sauvignon Blanc adds a touch of exotic herbaceous qualities that add an irresistible aspect you can't ignore.

Cheers!
