This is the wine that will keep you fueled and refreshed while sitting or standing for hours on end on a hot day in front of a much hotter grill. A blend of 22% Viognier, 18% Sauvignon Blanc, 17% Grenache Blanc, 16% Roussanne, 6% Chardonnay, 5% Chenin Blanc and 16% Princess, which is somewhat akin to Muscat but has no seeds, is perfect for keeping your thirst quenched. Flavors of honeysuckle, jasmine, cantaloupe and passion fruit are wildly expressive and keep you coming back for more. I’m incredibly tough on blends like this but this one passed with flying colors keeping the acidity high and the residual sugar to a noticeable minimum.
