A very interesting blend of three grapes that includes Chardonnay, this is a very fine wine from Mallorca.
Aged in French oak this is an ideal wine to go with any kind of shellfish dish as the richness and viscosity, yet all the subtle fruit flavors makes this a stunning white and perfect when you're in hot and balmy weather.
I've long been a fan of the wines of New Zealand, especially from the Marlborough region, and one of my favorite producers has been Huia. Best known for a Sancerre like Sauvignon Blanc, the winery also makes some sensational Pinots. Both Noir and Gris.
The 2007 Huia Pinot Gris is a melon drop and citrus fruit bomb. While it shows all the minerals one expects in an Alsatian Pinot Gris, this wine shows that despite being a New World, Southern Hemisphere white, that the grape knows know difference. Layer upon layer of honeydew and cantaloup fruit, plus a hint of lime, lemon and of course, Kiwi fruit, this is a delightful summer poolside white that just always hits the spot.
