After a long afternoon meeting discussing the blog, wine and other important world affairs, it was time to chill on the patio with some vino. My wife was out of town and Spiderman and Glorious T extended an invitation for a cookout, with their son serving as grillmaster. Barbequed chicken and shrimp were on the menu and a nice bottle from Dr. Frank’s Vinifera Cellars was cooling off.
Salmon Run Cold Brook White is an off-dry white blend picked up during last summer’s trip to the Finger Lakes. The flavor is a mélange of citrus and fruit which is balanced by acidity. The finish is smooth with a touch of creaminess.
This is a great choice for shrimp or chicken and for unwinding as you watch the sun setting on a warm May day.
Cold Brook White is highly recommended as an everyday white.
