As summer and warm weather finally start to return, here are a few wines I have hand picked for great summer drinking.
(92) Picollo Ernesto Gavi 2016 (Italy)
This 100% Cortese wine starts off with wonderful bright fruit aromas. Most prevalent on first taste is flavors of Apricot. Overall great acidity but clean refreshing wine to drink all summer long.
(91) Groiss Gruner Veltliner 2015 (Austria)
Citrus aromas are the first thing to greet you upon raising the glass. This bright and lemony wine has just the right balance of acidity and minerality. Elegant and light finish make for a nice poolside wine.
(90) Anares Terra Nova Verdejo 2015 (Spain)
The aromas on this wine are of soft pear and lime. A nice hint of tart grapefruit midway thru plays nicely with a slight spicy tone. Short but mildly acidic finish lend well to many light summer fish dishes.
(92) Henry Fessy Les Vergers Macon-Villages 2014 (France)
The bright apple and citrus aromas that fill the glass are quite welcoming. The presence of all stainless steel ageing are evident in this extremely bright, clean, and elegant wine. Beautifully balanced acidity and minerality make this wine truly a pleasure to drink. A wonderfully fresh but slightly sweet finish are perfect for any occasion.
(90) Corte Giara Soave 2015 (Italy)
This Soave is truly inviting with a slightly golden yellow color and floral aroma. Fresh peach is noticeable followed by slight herbal notes. This wine has a very long and dry finish.
