Reserve de la Saurine

This wine, 2013 Reserve de la Saurine, should be labeled summer's best buy.  The wine is from the Gard region of southern France and is 100% Grenache.  The taste is pure strawberries with a bit of red raspberry thrown in for good measure.  It has a bone dry mouth feel that is both refreshing  and satisfying.   There's a bit of length to the finish.  This is the wine in the glass with the Asiago bread sticks below this post.  It was also perfect with a spatchcocked chicken from the grill and some rice. 

Best of all was the price - a mere $7.99.  Not the greatest rose' but when one is paying $8 it is definitely a best buy.

2013 Reserve de la Saurine, Rose' of Grenache.  12.5% alcohol and $8.
