As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy and to make plans.
Ernest Hemingway, A Moveable Feast
Edelweiss – an old favorite returns, and it’s done of the first white wines we made, Edelweiss, has just been released. The 2014 vintage is a fruity Austrian-style wine with lots of pungent apple and peach favors.
Everyone seems to like Edelweiss in its distinctive blue hoc bottle. It goes well with snacks – particularly salty ones like pretzels and potato chips. It’s also great with fish and pork dishes.
Served cold it makes a refreshing companion for any light meal.
We think you’ll like it too. Its a great wine for entertaining. Goes down easy, and while it is a dry white wine there is no bite, but rather, a clean finish that lingers on the tongue.
