Last week, I wrote about a Georgia winery that has sustainability at the forefront of all it does. Persimmon Creek Vineyards
, the family owned, boutique vineyard in Clayton, Ga., was kind enough to send me some wine.
Last weekend I opened a bottle of their Seyval Blanc. Don’t be surprised if you’ve never heard of Seyval Blanc; I never had either. It’s a white wine that’s crisp, light – slightly citrusy and peachy; however, it was not overly sweet, which I liked.
We had a hodge-podge of food for dinner the night I opened the Seyval Blanc – some roasted red peppers and provolone, some pork pot stickers with a soy sauce dip, a few grilled cheese sandwiches cut up into quarters, and some apple slices. That’s the type of dinner you get around here when you get back late from the pool on a Friday night and nothing has been planned. I was pleased to find that the wine paired just fine with everything and was particularly tasty with pot stickers.
This is a fabulous summer white, but I can imagine it on a chilly early fall night, too. It’s available at Sherlock’s Wine Merchants, Whole Foods Markets and Total Wine.
