I’ve found my new favorite summer wine, it’s Somerston’s Highflyer Grenache Blanc. Somerston only produced 28 barrels; 90% was aged in stainless steel tanks and 10% used in French oak barrels for 6 months.
The buttery colored wine is 100% Grenache Blanc that has hints of citrus and floral smells. Tastes of grapefruit, orange, and melon burst in your mouth while there is a hint of spice and vanilla that finishes the taste. It’s a crisp clean mild palate wine that would go great with a night of friends or light fish dish. And for about $19.99 a bottle it doesn’t hurt to pick up a few bottles for the summer.
