Wine of the Week: 5/27/11

A crisp splash of summer

 


Well summer has arrived with a vengeance in New York. The humidity is creeping up, along with the temperature, and that makes me yearn for a light, crisp, refreshing white - and with modest alcohol, please.

I'm thinking of wine that will serve not only to refresh the palate, but also the body, so there's no need to make it cerebral and the Casal Garcia Vinho Verde does just that.

This is simple, sapid wine with clear citrus flavors, a touch of effervescence and a cleansing, refreshing acid-driven finish. The alcohol is right about 11% so you won't have to worry too much if you end up overindulging. And the best part? This is just a smashing match for the chilled seafood and light fish dishes that the summer beckons for. Well actually the best part is the price, under $8.00 a bottle in most markets.
