Saturday Sangria: Kumquat Chamblaise

I’m starting to think that white wine sangrias are the wine trend of the summer (which is completely fine with me!), because so many of the tastiest recipes I keep bookmarking involve white wine and new and exciting fruit combinations.

This week is the perfect example: Kumquat Chamblaise sangria

This exotic sangria combination was found over at Chef Wanabe, and it’s definitely made its way onto the menu for the next backyard BBQ I host.  Such an unexpected and tantalizing combination!

To really complement the sweet-and-sour contrast of the kumquat, citrus and agave, I’ll be using Chamblaise as my white wine.  It’s a nice dry, crisp white with fruity aromas and soft floral notes – just like the kumquat.  Its medium body will hold up nicely against the sharp citruses, and its balanced acidity should make it a refreshing choice for a hot summer day.

Cheers to off-beat fruit and exciting new flavours!
