Alanna McIntyre's Picks

This white blend (Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Viognier, Grenache Blanc, Carignan Blanc) from Southern France overdelivers on many fronts.  It is organic and biodynamic, has an inviting aroma of fresh white flowers and ripe stone fruit, the palate has a great texture showing stone fruit and minerality.  This is an incredibly drinkable wine that will appeal to a range of palates and easily pair with a variety of foods as it strikes a balance between aromatic intensity and freshness.  The great price point is an added bonus.
