The flavors of Spring abound in our Spring picks
Villa Sandi “Il Fresco” Brut Prosecco, Veneto, Italy $12.99
Also-served by the glass at The Parker – Palm Springs
“ll Fresco”‘ – “the Fresh”
Soft golden yellow with long lasting sparkling. In the nose we smell green apples, A tangy, harmonically and elegant taste. Fruit with hints of honey.
Chateau Saint Florin White Bordeaux, France (Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon grapes) $11.99
Also-Served by the glass at Cuistot
This white blend from the Bordeaux region in southwestern France is a nice combination of Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon.
A clear pale yellow in color with hints of gardenias and thyme in the nose, with a floral aspect carries to the palate with just a touch of white pepper. Finishing with round and bright mineral tones.
A stand-up summer wine, great for any fresh shellfish or lighter style fish such as a grilled halibut
It has an attractive pale lemony-gold color. The nose has well-defined fresh aromas of apple, pear and grapefruit with nuances of flinty minerality. Crisp and refreshing, with a little more creaminess on the mid-palate adds richness and flesh to the texture. Moderately long, refreshing finish.
Its bouquet is a wonderful melange of mineral tinged strawberries with a slightly soapy, floral quality. It’s nose is so fresh, you can almost sense its acidity which makes for some mouthwatering, pre-tasting excitement.
