Keenan’s Summer Blend is a white wine composed primarily of Chardonnay. As with past vintages a portion of an aromatic white varietal has been added to our Chardonnay. This year’s Summer Blend contains ten percent Albariño, a white grape from Spain and Portugal that began being cultivated in the US in the mid 90’s. The Albariño adds an array of fruit characters to the nose of the finished blend, while the Chardonnay supplies structure and additional aromatics.
The lighter body of the blend prompts us to add “Summer Blend” to the label. This is a great wine to enjoy on a warm summer evening. Aromas of ripe peach, lemon zest, and pineapple augment the concentrated floral nuances. This is a medium bodied wine with crisp acidity and mouth filling flavors.
