Menage a Trois White Table Wine

menage-a-trois-white-table-wine

 

Varietal:  White Table Wine (Chardonnay, Chenin Blanc, Moscato)
Region:  California
Cost:  $9.99

A light white with bright flavors and a soft, subtle, floral finish to it that will pair well with most any white meat.

Recommendations:  My father gave me this wine as my mother and he have become fans of both this and the red partially due to the price, and also because of the versatility of the wines.  I’d seen it in stores before, and even talked it over with my boss (whom blushes at even the thought of ordering it), but had yet to order it myself.

My wife and I paired this light white with a meal of honey-lime pork cutlets and bacon-cheddar risotto.  The sweetness of the honey on the pork was a nice compliment to the floral finish to the Menage a Trois, as was the richness of the risotto.

I’m not going to claim that the Menage a Trois white is an amazing wine that everybody should rush out and buy a case of, but as white table wines go, it’s actually very functional and versatile, which is what you want from your table wine.  If you’re looking to be blown away, you won’t be.  If you’re looking for a light wine that will pair with a Thursday evening dinner or out on the deck, you can’t miss with this inexpensive white.

  1. Menage a Trois white is one of my regular wines on Friday after work at my son’s lounge.
    Pairs with just about anything on his bar menu, from crab cakes, crab dips, Mediterranean
    rotizza (sic), shrimp krokets or chicken wings.
    Do like the white, but not so hot on the red.
