Keri's Summer Sip Picks
2019 CONTE DE LA TERRE VERMENTINO
Dunnigan Hills, California
Lively and aromatic with green apple, ripe peach and honeysuckle with hint of salinity and a lingering finish. For Sauvignon Blanc fans to step out of their comfort zone, try something different, summery, refreshing, with yummy summery peach notes!
Lake County, California
Ripe mango, pineapple and honeysuckle are balanced by lemon peel with a mouthcoating-but-bright finish. Although you might think this one to be "sweet" from the looks of the bottle, this one is a yummy dry muscat blanc, with a light and crisp lemon and mango notes, perfect for summer sippin'
Willamette Valley, Oregon
Aromatic and juicy with ripe orange, Meyer lemon and honeysuckle on a medium-bodied frame with a lingering finish Drinks like a Sauvignon Blanc. Definitely an off dry Gewurztraminer. Not sweet. Citrus flavored, tart, and refreshing. Very good!
North Coast, California
Bright and refreshing with strawberry, red cherry and melon balanced by crushed limestone on a well-textured frame with lively acidity and a dry finish. It's definitely earthy and crisp, has a touch of melon that I love, also thought the acidity was perfect, and definitely had a dry finish, love it!
Coteaux d'Aix en Provence, France
Fresh and expressive with notes of wild strawberry, peach, honeysuckle and white flowers and a round finish. For those who love their Provencial Rosés, this one is a fan favorite. This is my go-to rose for performance and price point.
