Four Great Warm-Weather Whites for Under $15

We’re approaching that time of year where the heat breaks and leaves start to change. Here are four great value wines to enjoy during the warm weather in between seasons:

Pine RidgePine Ridge 2012 Chenin Blanc + Viognier (Napa): $12.99

Winemaker’s notes: “The crisp, honeyed fruit of Chenin Blanc is united with the plush body, light floral aromas and juicy stone fruit notes of Viognier, for a wine that is both sophisticated and easy to enjoy.” 90 points from Parker! Pairs well with spicy seafood dishes like Thai curry.

VinosiaVinosia 2012 Falanghina (Campania): $12.99

Winemaker’s notes: “Notable fragrance and freshness, characteristics underlined by its unique composition of acidy, sapid berry.” A coastal wine with a “whiff of the ocean”, this Falanghina will pair well with Italian preparations of seafood.

Sybille Kuntz

Sybille Kuntz 2010 Dry Riesling
(Mosel): $14.99

Winemaker’s notes: “Fresh, delicious aromas with flavors of pineapple and apricots.” This dry wine features beautiful minerality and lingering acidity. Pairs exceptionally with grilled chicken.

Ferrari-CaranoFerrari-Carano 2012 Fumé Blanc (Sonoma): $14.99

Winemaker’s notes: “Aromas of orange blossom, quince, and white peach, complemented by flavors of pineapple, and guava. Bright, crisp acidity from the stainless steel tank fermentation meets the subtle oak character from barrel aging.” Pair with a spice-rubbed pork tenderloin.

There you have it – plan a nice meal this week and grab one of these wines to enjoy with it. All of them are also available on our website with free delivery at bauerwines.com.

Jeff
