The seven grapes blended to produce this white wine (in order of most to least) are Müller Thurgau, Pinot Gris, Viognier, Gewürztraminer, Riesling, Chardonnay and Pinot Blanc. The aromas and flavors immediately reminded me of my days in the Florida Keys – juicy tropical pineapple, grapefruit and key lime are highlighted by a tiny touch of jasmine. Subtle acidity balances out the fruitiness and leaves the palate refreshed and wanting more. Anything and everything Thanksgiving will pair well with 7.
