Casalarga_treblancCasa Larga's Gallery 155 tre Blanc ($15) is one of the more unique blends I've tasted in a while. And I mean unique in a good way and not just for the sake of being unique.

The result of blending 57% Muscat Ottonel, 33% traminette and 10% Gewurztraminer from multiple vintages and vineyards throughout New York State, it offers clean, zesty citrus aromas with intense ginger spice and a faint-but-interesting minty-herbal note.

Medium weight, the palate shows more lemon and grapefruit zest with candied ginger and a crisp pear flavors at the end of a long, dry finish. .5% residual sugar is balanced extremely by lively, tongue-tingling acidity.
