The palest blush, the lightest minerality—the new vin gris from Birichino is the single most drinkable answer to your warm-weather wine needs.
Well-chilled, it is ready to partner everything from green olives and marcona almonds, to grilled salmon or pizza bianca.
A rumor of geranium in the nose opens into salted citrus, violets, even a hint of rosemary in the long, persistent center. This sophisticated, yet completely accessible wine is created from a blend of old vine cinsault, grenache and rolle.
Complex enough to form the centerpiece of a graduate seminar, this latest release from Birichino is also an effortless summer quaff with a feather-light 13% alcohol. @ Soif.
