The Heat is On, Better Chill the Whites!
It seems that Spring has abruptly ended and the heat of Summer has arrived. Have no fear, though, the Corkdorks have chosen some amazing whites and rosés this week to set in the fridge and sip in the shade!
Merry Edwards Sauvignon Blanc 2013
In the glass, the wine is mouthwatering, showing off floral notes of jasmine, orange blossoms and lemon verbena. This delicate perfume is complemented by rich citrus tones of lime zest, tangerine and mandarin orange. White peach and ripe pear along with tropical accents of pineapple, lycheé and guava round out the aromatic profile. A hint of minerality, along with a bit of exotic barrel spice — cumin and coriander — add even more intrigue.
Christian Moreau Chablis 2013
An appealingly fresh nose flirts with mild exoticism with an aromatic array that includes pear, apple, apricot and sea breeze hints. There is lovely vibrancy to the absolutely delicious middle weight flavors that possess fine intensity on the solidly complex and refreshing finish.
Pieropan Soave Classico 2013
Fragrances recall honeysuckle, jasmine and citrus zest. The juicy palate offers creamy green apple, Bartlett pear and nectarine alongside zesty acidity. A note of white almond signals the close.
St. Supery Oak Free Chardonnay 2014
This Chardonnay presents brilliant shades of pale yellow and green. Aromas of nectarine, white peach, lime, and kiwi combine with expressive orange marmalade. Flavors of nectarine follow with lime, honeydew and orange zest. This is a bright, exciting wine that finishes clean and crisp with lots of exotic flavors.
