It's Friday night and I find my self getting a little ahead on the reviews. Normally, I like to drink four or five or more wines per week and then pick one for a weekly review. This past week though, I am finding that it may be damn difficult to chose one, so I've been drafting a few to publish later. It may be the heat, but I really think it's just the fact I've been opening many of the outstanding wines I brought home from the Finger Lakes Wine Fest.
Color was nice, light straw and very bright. Lots of nice aromas of peach, pear, some apple and a little floral with a very clean melon, lemon/lime and hints of mineral. A nice, nice citrusy finish made this a perfect white wine to beat the heat.
After the first glass, Shirley made a dessert of Mascarpone cheese covered with fresh blueberries. Pairing was real nice, but I would have rather had the dessert with fresh strawberries. Even better would be a strawberry/blueberry mix. We'll settle that in the morning when we pick up our fruit and veggies for the week at the Central New York Regional Market. Maybe even a nice peach dessert for next time. Well, dessert really doen't matter as long as it's a great white wine from the Finger Lakes.
