Let’s be honest…there are numerous types of jungle juice out there in the wine market. And while France has a tradition of blending varietals to produce supposedly superior wines (and consequently wine labels that most non-winos cannot ready), the American wine industry is primarily focused on reaching the highest quality levels with a single varietal.
That said there are examples of American blends that should be recognized and most importantly consumed.
One such wine is Sokol Blosser’s mysterious and intriguing Evolution, Lucky Edition. A secret blend of 9 different varietals I’ve known this non-vintage wine to be a continuously reliable white for any informal occasions. It’s is ideal for summer concerts, social gatherings, or when your day requires a solid white that demands little contemplation to enjoy.
Here is my complete review:
NV Sokol Blosser Evolution, Lucky Edition 15 (12% alc)
Pale straw in color, the nose has the floral acidity of a Viognier mixed with sweet notes of peach and pear. Medium bodied the wine is weighty up front on the palate with hints of spice, rolling into bright acidity on the back half. The finish balloons in the mouth and lingers with notes of tart apple and tropical citrus flavors. A relaxed, refreshing, and versatile wine for pairing with foods.
Retails Around $15
