Unsurprisingly, I opted for the red blend (a mix of Grenache and Syrah grapes), which I paired with a medium-rare steak courtesy of my grill-master fiancé. My first impressions were that it was smooth and drinkable, and genuinely, I had no notes. Next up was the white, which is referred to as dry with a “citrus and a crisp, fresh surface”– just how I like it. As somebody who normally gets a hangover after one (1) glass of white, I was thrilled when I got up clear-eyed and bushy-tailed the next early morning. Avaline’s whole M.O. has to do with better components resulting in better red wine– and I’m beginning to think they’re onto something. The rosé was also light, bright, and absolutely yum– which’s originating from someone who does not generally like rosé. Finally, was the shimmering. I love a just-because bottle of bubbly, and Avaline’s did not disappoint. The bubbles were crisp and small, and offered serious Veuve Cliquot vibes at a $30 cost point.
