Back in the days before Prohibition, the wines from the Lake Erie Islands far outsold the wines from Sonoma.  Peruse and older text and you will see that these islands produced some of the top wines this country produced.  Nowadays, the islands mostly serve as a summer weekend destination for fun and cheap beer, but there is still some wine being made in the area.  No doubt most of the wine is better enjoyed on a hit summer's day, listening to music in a bar.  Still, it is good to try the wines and see what is being produced.  This is a blend of Sauvignon Blanc and Vidal Blanc.  It is unclear where the grapes were grown.  Light golden in color.  The nose is quite tight.  Not really showing much at all.  Perhaps a bit of minerality.  On the palate, there is more evident minerality.  A bit clipped on the finish.  This would indeed be refreshing if consumed cold on a hot day.  Probably not worth buying a case to bring home, but fun to try.
