Domaine du Mas de Rey Coeur de Camargue, 2015

If you feel you are in a rut, cycling back and forth between Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc, this wine is for you. A blend of Chasan (60%), Sauvignon Blanc (20%) and Gros Manseng (20%), it offers up unique smells and flavors, a rich texture and refreshing acidity. Chasan is a varietal created in 1958 by crossing Chardonnay with Listan (known as Palomino in Spain). The vineyards for Coeur de Camargue are located in Camargue National Park near Arles in Southern France. Very deep gold but, even though the vintage is 2015, there are no other suggestions of advancing age. Fresh, spicy aromas. Flavors suggest white peaches, blood orange and a hint of caramel. Bracing acidity and more tannins than you would expect from a white wine. A perfect wine for drinking on the deck on a warm summer evening.
