Best Buy! Mike Andrews first offered this white blend under his Downtown label, but he’s finding more success by labeling it as LOL, in large part because of the blends created by Justin Michaud. This time, it leads with Chardonnay (47%) that’s backed by Albariño (25%), Roussanne (25%) and Viognier. There are charming aromatics that bring hints of grassiness with tropical fruit, tutti frutti, pear and apple. Its flavors are tropical yet dry with lychee in the background, and the fascinating texture also allows for flavors of pear and apple to develop. This earned a gold medal at the Denver International, and it’s easy to see why with its creamy midpalate, touch of sweetness and balanced acidity. Enjoy as a chilled quaffer or serve with shrimp or scallops.
