Day 151-Classic Demi-Sec by Tabor Hill Winery of Buchanan, Michigan for $7.99 at Binnys
This wine was bought on a lark since we did not like any of the Pinot Noir we tried at the Pinot Noir tasting at Binnys this last Friday. This wine did not say what type of grape was used, however the wine was described as a soft, semi-dry white wine. I believe the grape to be the Traiminette. The wine is slightly sweet with some spice of ginger or cinnamon that I find to be indicative of the Traiminette grape. At this price, this is another great summer wine to have with barbecue. We had this wine with grilled chicken breast, baked beans, and more taco dip. The wine was a hit with my better half, despite him being heavy into sweet wines, and my sister who prefers a dry wine. I would almost buy this wine by the case due to its price and its variability to appeal to a lot of wine drinkers.
