2014 Cloudy Bay Sauvignon Blanc, Marlborough, New Zealand | $28/btl | 93 pts by Wine Spectator            

“The 2014 Sauvignon Blanc Marlborough is intensely scented of gooseberries, elderflower and fresh lemon with hints of white asparagus and sage. Medium-bodied, it fills the mouth with vibrant vegetal and citrus notes held up by a lively acid backbone and good long finish.”

2013 “Quibia” by Anima Negra, Proprietary Blend, Mallorca, Spain | $19/btl |90 pts by Wine Advocate Anima Negra Quibia 300x300 6 White Wines You Should Drink This Summer

“A kind of blanc de noirs, the color does not give you any hint of red grapes taking part in the blend (60% Callet, a red grape, 30% Premsal Blanc and 10% Giró Ros) and the nose is also redolent of white fruit, and some leesy, yeasty notes, quite clean and fruit-driven. The palate is quite succulent, with good volume and acidity, with simple, clean fruit flavors ending quite fresh. I was rather impressed”

eroica 6 White Wines You Should Drink This Summer2013 Chateau Ste. Michelle “Eroica”, Riesling, Washington | $20/btl | 93 points by Wine Enthusiast

“Deliciously precise, marked by a green apple freshness that isn’t just a flavor; it’s a feeling. Apple informs its lifted scent, its purity of flavor and also its driving energetic movement. The textures draw to a close through the lens of citrus, lemon and lemon pith, a drawstring of focus and detail. A great aperitif, it would pair beautifully with lemon risotto as well.”

2013 Raventos i Blanc “Silencis”, Xarello, Conca del Rui Anoia, Spain | $25/btl | 92 points by Wine Advocatesilencis 6 White Wines You Should Drink This Summer

“Apple notes, smoky, flinty, bread dough and a salty, mineral finish with superb acidity and freshness. Pure acid, fruit juice with an electric feeling in the palate. A superb Mediterranean Xarello that should develop well.”
