Finally Summer has arrived and it is officially White Wine Season! When most think of white wine the first varital to pop into one’s head is Chardonnay. While Chardonnay is quite delicious, it is not always the best on hot summer days. Don’t worry! Here at Jungle Jim’s we have the perfect white wines to enjoy outdoors and poolside!
Tablas Creek Patelin de Tablas Blanc
2015 White Blend
Paso Robles, California
#26 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2017. Rhone blend from one of the original Rhone Rangers in California. Juicy melon, pink grapefruit, and zippy acidity. Absolutely one of the best summer wines around!
93 points ~ Wine Spectator
2016 Sauvignon Blanc
Napa Valley, California
Big grapefruit with lemon and lime zest. High acidity leaves your mouth watering for more. A poolside favorite!
91 points ~ Wine & Spirits
From one of the oldest producers in Alsace. This traditional riesling is one not to miss. Bone dry with tart pear and citrus. Generous minerality and the unforgettable Alsatian terrior!

2016 White Rioja
A little out of the ordinary but still fantastic. 100% Viura is young and exuberante! White flowers on the nose, ripe apple, honeysuckle, and just enough acid to leave this wine juicy and fresh.
