This has become my house white since it is so versatile and a crowd pleaser. Easy on the pocketbook, with some complexity: At $11, it’s a tremendous value. The screw cap top is perfect for all the pre-holiday gatherings that I have hosted. Made from 50% Sauvignon Blanc, 40% Semillon and 10% Muscadelle, it’s a lively balanced wine, on that’s been vinified with a distinct character. I met the winemaker a few years back and I can still hear him say that his goal was to reserve as much of the lively nature of the Sauvignon Blanc as possible.
