What I hate doing is always drinking the same types of wines. Granted this is great when it's something like an Amarone, Port, or something else that is very lush, but one of the greatest aspects of wine is the chance to always try something in a grape that you haven't had before. This time around, I was introduced to a wine that is a combination of two grapes; Ugni-Blanc(70%) and Colombard (30%).

The wine itself is a little lively, even when served at room temperature, and has balanced acidity and a light body. The flavors are an assortment of citrus and fruits that caress your tastebuds (I didn't want to say exotic fruits, because that in itself is a most misunderstood term).

I think that this wine is great for many dishes and many occasions, even dipping into being fine for game and red meat (defy convention, drink what you like).

We believe in finding something that you like the taste of, outside of the basic brands that you have been force-fed over the years through a combination of ethnically targeted advertising, and what people in your family have historically been drinking.
