Coopershawk Chenin Blanc/Pinot Gris for $16.99
This wine is the May wine of the month at Cooperhawk. The wine is 55% Chenin Blanc and 45% Pinot Gris. This wine is very good. The wine is light, crisp, semi-dry with just enough sweetness to balance the acidity. The bottle never even made it out of the restaurant. We paired this wine with lobster stuffed potato skins and it was perfect. I find this wine as versatile as the Unoaked Chardonnay and almost as good. Hopefully, there will still be some of this wine left in 1 month when it is available to the members. I would pair this wine with chicken or fish, but best of all it would be great on its own to drink as a daily white wine.
