Another wine in the Gallo Family of wines luxury collection. For the July wine dinner at Randy’s Steakhouse it was paired with Cesar Salad with Parmesan Croutons.
This smells like a buttery chardonnay. Another of my dining companions said it smells like if SweetTarts made a wine. A third disagreed and said Smarties. The point is that the scent (and taste) is very distinct – buttery but tart.
It’s a good white after a hot day, but it’s a Friday wine – not a porch pounder. So, I’d start with appetizers on the porch and then move to a main course of tuna.
For a ladies who lunch or Junior League luncheon I’d suggest serving it with a Niçoise Salad.
It’s definitely not a grape or wine this US-based palate is used to drinking. However while it went well with the parmesan and olives in the salad, we all decided it would be better without food.
