Whites to Welcome Spring

Whites to Welcome Spring Last week we asked our professional friends to fill us in on what wines were really ringing their bells over the past month. Today we focus in on the wines we’ll all be reaching for shortly. Whites for Spring. I know that the first white you’ve probably reached for this Spring was probably something you were already familiar with. That is to be expected, but I also know that it won’t take long for you to stretch your vinous legs and start once again down the path of discovery; that’s where the pros come in.

Wine professionals taste a ton of wine, and retailers in particular have to stand behind what they recommend. Not only do they have a reputation to protect, they also have to make some money so you know that if they’re going to get up on a soapbox to promote a wine, they’re are pretty sure that many of their customers are going to be happy with that wine. All too frequently we seem to have an adversarial relationship with our wine retailers, assuming that their capitalistic instincts have subsumed their ability to discern what s great in wine. Nothing can be further from the truth, and in fact the reverse is probably more closely to reality. When one’s livelihood is on the line one tends to be doubly sure that the wines you are selling overdeliver. let’s check out this set of recommendations and see what we think!

  • Great recommendations! I am particularly a fan of the Picpoul, which is finally starting to trickle its way into this country! I would add Vinho Verde, the perfect patio wine--great acidity to spark the appetite, a bit of sparkle to tickle the tonsils, and low alcohol to not weigh you down on a hot day.

    Thanks very much!
    Picpoul is phenomenal, assembling examples for a tasting right now in fact. As far as Vinho Verde goes, gotta save something for summer!
