Summer White Wines At A Cool Value

Getting past the typical white wines that keeps us beholden to our comfort zones, this summer we’ve been sipping some fine whites from around the world all under $15. Summer is about slowing down, and enjoying so our thoughts on five wines for the summer are short, and to the point. They all pretty much have a refreshing quality to them making them ideal summer wines. With National Oyster Day looming in the shadows of this upcoming week, we thought to mention that each of these wines will pair nicely with the highly celebrated mollusk; so if you’re hosting a backyard oyster shucking party any one or all of these affordable wines will pair nicely as they will with clams, steamers, crabs and lobster.

Hermanos del Villar, Oro de Castilla Verdejo

Hermanos del Villar, Oro de Castilla Verdejo, a Spanish white; crisp and refreshing, balanced and substantial. A nice quality wine for <$15

King  Estate ’Signature Collection’ Pinot Gris, Oregon 2012. Beautiful texture, structure and minerality. A cornucopia of summer fruits with balanced acidity. A well-balanced wine, so enjoyable a steal for <$15

Palacio de Bornos, Verdejo, from Rueda, Spain. This 100% Verdejo is acidic and lemony with prominent black licorice long and lingering on the palate. Interesting , moody and pensive wine <$15

Summer white for a lazy Saturday afternoon; Herdade do Esporão Verdelho 2013. Crisp, bright, lively, no oak <$15, easy and very drinkable.

Summer sippin’ is in full swing with this refreshing, easy white blend from Portugal. Nice change from the typical summer whites. 2013 Herdade do Esporão Monte Velho Alentejano. Value priced <$10.
