Summer 6 white wine selection
Anthony’s selection of six fantastic value white wines.
Soave Classico, Terre di Montforte, 2019. This Soave is light, clean and bright with florals amid notes of ripe peach and almond. The wine shows excellent depth on the palate and a lovely balance between ripe, aromatic fruit and fresh, zingy acidity. A classic Soave from the volcanic soils of the town of Monteforte d’Alpone in Veneto. Perfect with fish and salads. 100% Garganega.
Torres Vina Esmeralda, Catalonia 2018. Viña Esmeralda takes its name from the emerald colour of the Mediterranean. It is a refreshing summery wine with floral, honeysuckle aromas and delicate notes of Acacia honey. It goes especially well with seafood paella and shrimp risotto, but also with grilled fish and soft cheeses. Moscatel de Alejandría, Gewürztraminer.
Borsao Chardonnay Macabeo, Campo Borja 2018. Peach and apricot give way to citrus fruits and pineapple to create a marmalade-like flavour and textural richness with silky, golden fruits. A delicious limey lick on the finish gives the wine balance and freshness. A wine to match with fish and poultry, but also spicy foods. Try Asian. 50% Macabeo, 50% Chardonnay.
