Some refreshing summer sippers

Jewell Towne’s Peter and Brenda Oldak have been growing vines on their property for several decades now, having sought out hardy varieties that can withstand their allegedly mild New England winter, and that continue to produce delightful wines. One of these, Jewell Towne Aurore, is made from the Aurore grape, which in Jewell Towne’s hands produces a light, pale gold wine with good balance and very good acidity, on par with the acidity of a good Pinot Grigio, a light palate, in which the nose and flavors reflect white fruit, and some good hints of citrus, in a dry presentation that holds the fruit through to the finish. Very refreshing, and calls for summer salads, and whitefish on the grill. Or some of the less spicy Chines foods. $13.99, 11% ABV, just right for a warm summer night. This one can be enjoyed both at room temperature to bring out its full flavor profile, or just slightly chilled for some nights. Jewell Towne Vineyards offers tours and wine tastings in a regular basis. You can find out more at firstname.lastname@example.org.
