Are you having enough white wines and rosés this spring? If not, you should be, because this is the perfect time of the year to enjoy them.
Served well-chilled, these wines are exceptional springtime adult beverages. A little cheese, a sliced baguette, perhaps some fresh fruit, and a glass of white wine or rosé is a terrific combination to start off an evening or a nice way to reward yourself for completing that weekend chore list.
Although most whites — especially those that are sweeter or high in acidity — taste better with several hours in the fridge, be careful not to overdo it with full-bodied white wines such as chardonnay or viognier, where too much chilling can mask those wine’s flavors.
Here are some recommendations of white wines and rosés worth checking out this spring:
The Madeleine Angevine displays lovely floral aromatics, green pear and melon flavors, a flourish of spice, and bracing acidity that make it perfect for springtime sipping.
And Primus’s Siegerrebe is completely over-the-top with generous casaba melon and apricot flavors framed with hints of nutmeg and allspice. There’s also a good splash of acidity to complement the gentle ambrosia-like sweetness on the finish. Exceptional!
