It’s been a while since I could drink white wine without it burning. Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Pinto Grigio – all lashed flames on the way down.
Recently, I discovered a white wine that tasted really good and didn’t burn. It was a little on the pricey side – for special occasions.
I received a dinner invitation and decided this was a good $$ wine event. Explaining my predicament and discovery to the cashier at the wine shop, she said that most likely the problem was with the acidity of one-grape wines, and the solution was getting a mixed-grape version.
My next step was to go to TJ’s, explain the situation and see if they might offer a non-offending white wine. The kind and informative Joe had a good suggestion:
Joe said that the flavor rivaled the $$ wine I liked. As we talked, he said, “Well, it’s not exactly the same. But it’s pretty close.” And, as with all TJ’s items, Joe reminded me that if I didn’t like it, I could just bring it back.
He was right that it wasn’t quite the same as the $$ wine. But, I did enjoy a glass that went down smoothly and painlessly! Cheapwinefinder.com describes Pancake’s Big Day White as a “Tuesday night wine.”
Give it a try. It’s only five bucks! And it’s summer.
