Linguine Primavera was on our menu the other night, adapted from the book I just reviewed “Pasta Verde”. I also mentioned that I served a great Sauvignon Blanc with our dinner. The 2004 Reynolds Vineyards Sauvignon Blanc flowed freely and paired so well with our pasta. Let me tell you about Reynolds Vineyards. They are located in the Southwest area of one of my favorite countries, Australia! The Reynolds Sauvignon Blanc is sourced from the famed “Nanya” vineyard in the Murray Valley (Riverland) of South Australia just 150 miles Northeast of Adelaide. My blogging friends from Australia Nora, Lucy and Johanna, I am sure, know exactly where this area is located. Reynolds Sauvignon Blanc is a nice white wine made of 88% Sauvignon Blanc and 12% Chardonnay grapes. My taste buds were treated to a medium bodied wine overflowing with tropical fruit flavors. And to top it all off, my favorite “down under” hint of grassiness presented itself while I was swirling the wine around in my mouth. Oh too good! For the low price of under $12.00, a perfect way to start the end of your day!
Before I end for today, I thought I would share a little piece of Key West with you!
Most of them around town are painted in all sorts of lively colors!
And for those of you who are freezing your ass off in the north, come on down!
