The ABCs of Summer

Five white wines guaranteed to make a splash this summer

The ABCs of Summer With the first heat wave of the season just passed, it’s no surprise that I was left scouring my local wine retailer’s shelves for liquid salvation. Sadly, I stopped in the wrong shop and left with a bottle of wine that, while it fulfilled its duty, left me wanting more, or less as the case may be.

More acidity, minerality and freshness were the ‘mores’ I had in mind. Less alcohol and richness completed my mental image of the perfect wine for summertime highs, and a nice lunch of shrimp tacos, or even better, dinner of scallops, sea bass, and a nice greek salad, fava beans optional. So what exactly did I have in mind when I passed through my wine shop’s doors? Five wines to be exact, each of which would have been a vacation in a bottle. Five glorious wines to make summer’s heat more bearable, and summer’s menus come alive!

    I honestly didn't mind the multitudinous references to white wine and seafood pairings, it is one of summer's many joys. I have been enjoying the focus the last few weeks on whites and fish/seafood cuisine.

    Though I thought of a few possible additions to the summer whites list: Gruner Veltliner, Verdejo, Fiano and for the adventurous Furmint, Harslevelu.
