Entre-Deux-Mers (white Bordeaux) was all the rage in the early days of Ontario’s discovery of wine. I think it cost $4.95 in stores, and $12.95 at restaurants. The Chardonnay boom put an end to it, and all other whites – at least till New Zealand introduced Sauvignon Blanc – which funnily enough is the main grape in Entre-Deux-Mers. Full circle eh!
The wine below is tamer – more easy drinking, than the Kiwi edition due to a few other grapes in the blend. A charming refresher for sure. And value priced – just as it was back when.
