It really does nothing for me.
There is one brand that I really enjoy but I think it is because of the blend of three whites that hooked me on it.
That was until I was sent FlipFlop wines to try. I admit, I was skeptical. In fact, I tried the red first and only recently opened the whites and I am more of a fan of white wine then I was a week ago.
I opened the Washington Riesling, at the suggestion of my contact there, because the Husband likes a sweet wine. The Husband was not around to try it because he has to actually show up for work and I have evenings free to lounge around in my PJs, sipping wine and dining on sushi... sorry, I was daydreaming.
In reality, the Husband has to get up way early in the morning to be able to join me in actually enjoying a glass so he has opted to wait... I on the other hand, am a more seasoned wine connoisseur *giggles at self* and you can just call me oenophile.
In case, you are wondering... I am not sitting her with a jelly jar, full of this stuff while writing. I did that, while eating a wonderfully broiled steak and beautifully baked potato. I must say... they paired pretty well together even though it is not a traditional pairing. I like the fruity taste of the Riesling with the savory steak. I would however enjoy it more with a BBQ pulled pork or even a good stir fry (as the bottle says I would but would pick it anyway).
The Riesling was clean and crisp and was not overwhelmingly, sweet but still sweeter then I prefer in a wine.
My favorite of the two whites though is the California Pinot Grigio. I could actually taste the pear in the finish of the wine and I had eaten it with pizza. Can't help it... dig the pizza and wine combo because I am classy like that.
In all seriousness, I also paired it with baked chicken topped with salsa and served with a side of broccoli and it was seriously yummy! Who knew plain old broccoli would taste so good!
I would love to try it with a chicken sausage and mango salsa wrap with sweet potato fries... I will let you know how that goes!
This has a bright, clean taste that is smooth and just perfect for me in a white wine.
Obviously, if I had to chose between the two - hands down would be the Pinot Grigio but of the three FlipFlop wines I had to tried I am really loving the Pinot Noir still. Call me crazy but I prefer my wine red.
You can buy FlipFlop wines online here or (hopefully) at your local store. And if you did not read my last post - they are cheap but not cheap.
