Blend: Gros Manseng 50%, Sauvignon Blanc 40%, Ugni Blanc 10%
From: Cotes de Gascogne, Sud-Ouest France
Taste and pairing: This crystalline wine expresses itself on a nose of acacia flowers, a superb fruit of wild peaches and a very fresh mineral finish. It's the perfect white wine for feeling like springtime year round. Full stop. Gros Manseng and Petit Manseng play prominent roles in this wine, for beautiful results in the glass. Those two varietals are the jewels of France’s South-West, and are often served in country bistros alongside delicious sheeps milk cheese drizzled in a little honey. Those two varietals add depth and fall fruit flavors while the Sauvignon Blanc and Ugni Blanc keeps everything fresh and lively.
For other successful pairings, use this as you would a Bordeaux Blanc or steely Chenin Blanc. For us, shellfish, fresh sushi, white fish, and all the assortments of fresh vegetables work wonderfully. So, we’re sharing recipe for Mark Bittman’s Crabby Crab Cakes! The recipe will yield 4 crab cakes & will take roughly about an hour to make.
