A Dry White Season

drywhite3This Tuesday Tasting we try 3 bone-dry whites that still manage to wet your whistle. Featuring:

  • Pewsey Vale Dry Riesling, Australia – This Barossa Valley white is earning rave reviews (Suckling – 96 pts) and is a scrumptious surprise: crisp and arid, it tastes of limes, white flowers, and fresh rosemary with a clean minerality throughout. $18 btl, $8 btg
  • Villa Santa Loios, Portugal – Named after the Loios monks who have a long history in this southern region of Portugal, this dry white is made from two of the area’s traditional grape varieties (Rabo de Ovelha and Roupeiro) to create a fresh, crisp wine tasting of citrus, tart apple and minerals. $12 btl, $8 btg
  • Protea Chenin Blanc, South Africa – The elegant bottle is a good reflection of the delicate, dry white inside: pear, plum and honeysuckle are complemented by a hint of lemon and a mouthful of minerality. $16 btl, $7 btg

Tasting: $11
