Another wine to note is the brand new Blonde Five which is coming to stores in August. It has flavors of honeysuckle, pear, honey, baked apple and lemon zest. It is made of 65% Chardonnay, 20% Muscato, 8% Pinot Grigio, 6% Sauvignon Blanc and 1% Viognier. Troy enjoyed this flavor as well. If I was able to drink, I think that I would really like this blend.
I would pair any of these wines with a great recipe that I made last summer for Grilled Tuscan Salmon. It is a delicious dish that can be made quickly on the grill. It combines olives, spinach, tomatoes and more for a unique flavor. If you do not like that option, you could pair your CK Mondavi wine with my Sesame Soy Grilled Salmon.
CK Mondavi wines were started back in 1943 and have been around for four generations. Their grapes come from vineyards in California. It is run by Napa Valley wine icon Peter Mondavi Sr. This wine is American grown and made and can be found in supermarkets for less than $10. It can be found at every state in the US. Also, a % of each bottle sold from May-August is donated to the Intrepid Fallen Heroes.
