Refreshing Whites for the End of Summer

 

What better way to enjoy the last spell of summer with some gorgeous, refreshing, and naturally, delicious white wine? Sure, we could drink rosé all day, but sometimes there’s a need to switch things up and a cool glass of white is just the ticket. Try these next time you’re on a picnic, sitting on the patio of your favourite bistro, or at your local wine bar.

 

 

Albariño

 

A Spanish grape from Galicia in the northwestern corner of the Iberian Peninsula, Albariño is tasty, pleasantly aromatic, and brilliant with foods. With aromas and flavours reminiscent of orange blossoms, sea spray, apricots, and peach. It can have an attractive touch of bitterness and plenty of minerality as well and is made both oaked and unoaked. So many options!

 

You’ll also come across this grape in Portugal, particularly in the wines of Vinho Verde – a lightly spritzy, fresh wine that’s excellent with seafood.

 

On the Spanish side, we like the Do Ferreiro Albarino from Rias Baixas.

 

 

Vermentino

 

Light in body, this white is grown across Italy and the south of France (where it’s known as Rolle). The most famous Vermentino wines come from Sardinia, but you’ll find excellent, quaffable examples scattered across Liguria, Piedmont, and Tuscany. Green apple meets lime, grapefruit, and loads of stony minerality. Like Albariño, it can also be a touch salty, due to many vineyards’ proximity to the sea. Try Argiolas Vermentino di Sardegna.

 

 

Assyrtiko

 

Time for something a little off the beaten path but still consider an absolute classic. Assyrtiko is Greek and native to the small volcanic island of Santorini. Typically it’s bone dry with racy acid, although the odd sweet version is made as well. It’s easily one of the most exciting white wines to come out of Greece (although there are several other rising stars in the market). Because of its high acid, Assyrtiko is positively stunning with food.

 

Hatzidakis Assyrtiko is definitely a bottle you should order if you come across it on a wine list with Wine Picker.
