Staff Pick Notes

I took Tabernero Blanco to a family dinner a few weeks ago. The main dish was shrimp scampi slowly cooked with white onions, garlic, chopped basil, and olive oil, served with spaghetti. It was a perfect combination. There were some other wines at the table, but, whoever was having shrimp scampi was attracted to this clean, fresh, and dry white wine. This wine is a blend of Chenin Blanc, Sauvignon Blanc, and Chardonnay. Well-balanced and well-structured, with very light fruit and subtle herbal notes, this wine really made an impression on this group of people, all of whom were asking me where to get it. I was keeping a few bottles for occasions like this, but one day I could not help myself; I opened a bottle of this wine and I was surprised again how easy going it was by itself.

Chenin Blanc

A versatile grape that is grown worldwide, but is most commonly associated with the Loire, California, Australia, South Africa, and New Zealand. It produces just about any type of wine you can think of: ageworthy dessert wines; delicious, honeyed dry whites; sparklers; and even bases for fortified wines and spirits. These days, one of the most exciting stories is in South Africa, where newly...
