“The summer night is like a perfection of thought.” — Wallace Stevens
This is a perfect summer wine. Light, bright, ethereal. The Keswick Vineyards Verdejo 2010 is the color of pale gold, with crisp, clean aromas and flavors of green apple, grapefruit and fresh mown grass. Ideal for sultry summer nights on the patio. The perfect pairing is Back to Bakas’ White Asparagus Radicchio Crab Salad. The music match is “Summer of ‘69” by Bryan Adams from the album Reckless. Takes you back, no?
The details: 12.8% alcohol. Cork closure. Appellation: Monticello, Virginia. Varietal: verdejo. Suggested retail $19 USD and is available directly from the winery or select retailers. This was a media sample provided by the winery for the Summer Wines of Virginia Taste & Tweet event.
