Such a laid back late Spring weekend in Key West. Weather was very warm but humidity was down so it was very pleasant out. Finished up the "wine remnants" from the Roses' we have been trying and working on my latest experiment with Rose and White wine temperatures. Even got Nate and his wife over at Vinvenio interest sparked with trying the lighter wines at different temps. More on that later, as I am just starting to keep a journal entry on those.
Friday night we did have a wonderful Shrimp Scampi with Angel Hair Pasta dish. Chris the chef son can do such magic with simple food. This dinner, not including the wine, cost about $18-20 dollars. That was the night we had the "uneventful" Rose' from Anjou, but luckily had a bottle of Oyster Bay Sauvignon Blanc chilled and ready to go. I have purchased this wine on sale for $10.99. I think the regular price on this is $12.99. I did a post on this wine a week or so ago. Such a lovely full bodied wine with lots of grapefruit flavor and that grassy, mineral taste that is always the highlight at the end of your sip. It had lots of crisp and zippy acid which complimented the shrimp and pasta flavors.
Holler, who is a new blogger like me, ask for a photo of Fang the other day while I was visiting her site, Tinned Tomatoes. Here she is Holler, being the queen of the deck.
