Funky Whites

Funky white is a pretty broad term. What the heck classifies as funky after all. To me, it is something out of your comfort zone, or simply a little wacky and undiscovered.

Try something like Cederberg Bukettraube, a lightly sweet Vouvray style wine from South Africa that is delicious and addictive, and you will be hooked!

If that doesn't sound like your speed, how about something in the orange wine end of the spectrum (white wines with skin contact). These tend to be a little, well, funky but are worth trying. There is no time like the present, so jump into a bottle of Foradori Nosiola. A very gentle touch of skin contact makes this an easy to approach, easy to appreciate white, rich with orchard fruit and floral/herb notes buffered by a hint of tannins. Yum!

Two to Try:

2010 Cederberg Bukettraube

2010 Foradi Fontanasanta Nosiola

    I love the arrival of spring too and I think you are so right, you have to be prepared. A moment too late and you will be in the scorching summer. I am very interested in your selection, I will tell you how I celebrated Springtime last year was by spending Easter in the South of Burgundy and we discovered a marvelous producer called Jean-Pierre Michel a stone's throw from where we were staying, we loved his Viré Clessé "Terroirs de Quintaine", and his Macon Village just a touch greener that was such a perfect pre-dinner drink.

  • Why not a Muscadet to your shellfish, a Gruener Veltliner to your trout or a Sauvignon Blanc to your asparagus -- and a semisweet Riesling from Mosel or Rhine in the golden sunlight of May!!
