Happy Monday! Starting off this week with a more unusual wine – one from Wales! What’s more – it’s made from Solaris, a hybrid white wine varietal that’s mainly grown in Baden, Germany, but also in Wales. In case you’re wondering, its parent varietals are Merzling and GM 6493 (a crossing of Zarya Severa and Muscat Ottonel). Hints of SauvBlanc on the nose – green pepper, lemon – along with some more tropical notes of guava and pineapple. Similar on the palate with lots of tart, citrus acidity. Interesting and different!
