Wine: Indian Island

We had a wine night via FaceTime with some friends back home this past weekend. It was nice to catch up, and after 5 minutes the screen falls away, and you feel like you are back in the living room of your interior decorating savvy wino comrades.

On our end, the husband and I were drinking Indian Island Frontenac Gris. Granted, this would be a fantastic summer wine but its still skirting 40 degree highs with wintry mixes of snow and rain here.

The Frontenac Gris was peachy, juicy, fruity, with subtle notes of apples. It would make an outstanding white sangria (throw some strawberries, grapes, and raspberries? My mouth is watering thinking about it!). Indian Island is a Minnesota wine, made in Southern Minnesota.

This was an easy drinking wine. I paired it with some Gorgonzola crackers, dry roasted pistachios, and a few hours of laughing, laughing, and laughing.
