In spring, I tend to like the lighter, aromatic wines that help usher in warmer weather. They also pair well with lighter dishes of the spring season.
This unique white wine blend was created by Chuck Wagner of Caymus winery. Aromas of honeysuckle and orange blossom lead to a bright palate brimming with sweet citrus and juicy tangerine flavors. Enjoy as an aperitif, or pour to complement light seafood dishes.
$19.99 Eppa White Sangria
Fruity and inviting, with tasty characteristic of the ripe fruit juices used in its creation; light and refreshing, with crisp citrus notes that meld into pomegranate and berry overtones. Its natural, subtle sweetness is a result of its blend of real fruit juices. Enjoy as an aperitif.
$8.99 Estancia Pinot Grigio
One of the top domestic pinot grigio in the market, this wine has a fresh, fruit forward front palate with racy acidity, balanced by roundness from contact with the lees. Lemon and orange blossom honey collides with hint of roses. Seamless structure and a generous finish make this wine a true delight. Again, serve as an aperitif or with light dishes.
$8.99 Kenwood Sonoma Sauvignon Blanc
It’s hard to find Sonoma appellation wines for under $10. This Sauvignon Blanc is a lovely pale yellow. With the crack of the cap, unleash the unexpected as an array of delicious aromas leap from the glass. Tropical melon, pineapple and passion fruit tempt your senses. Great wine for spicy Asian dishes.
$7.99 Baron Des Chartron Bordeaux Blanc
This is brilliant, green and gold with intense aromas of fresh exotic fruits, grapefruits and mineral undertones and is a very typical Sauvignon Blanc from Bordeaux region. Enjoy intense aroma on palate with Muscat notes, fresh and lively finish with good length. Enjoy with seafood and spring vegetables.
