SUMMER WINE PICK: Potomac Point Vineyard & Winery | White Table Wine | Virginia | 2011 | $14

Potomac Point 2The agonizing heat and humidity gripping the East Coast this summer has sent us running for the relief of relaxed and refreshing white wines to sip and serve with light meals and shady picnics.  We didn’t have to venture too far down the road to find this one — Potomac Point’s “white table wine,” a blend of Vidal Blanc (70%), Viognier (20%), and Petit Manseng (10%).  Fruit-juicy and thirst quenching, it abounds with aromas of honeysuckle and ripe peach followed by flavors of honeyed pear and baked apples.  Luscious on the palate, the wine is unoaked (fermented and aged in stainless steel) and off-dry, with a generous splash of mouth-watering sweetness (1.9% residual sugar).  It’s a delicious summer sipping wine that would also serve well as a crowd-friendly apéritif at a wedding or party.  The winery will customize the bottle with your own private label for such events.  To order this wine or plan a visit to Potomac Point, visit them virtually at www.potomacpointwinery.com.
