Last Sips of Summer Whites
As summer winds to a close, we wanted to give extra special attention to two lovely bottles of white wine, perfectly suited for late August sipping.
Hedges CMS White
Varietals: 75% Sauvignon Blanc, with small amounts of Chardonnay and Marsanne.
Region: Columbia Valley, Washington
A blended white with Sauvignon Blanc dominating over 75% of the wine. Rounding out the blend is a touch of chardonnay accompanied by just a pinch of Marsanne. Beautifully structured with wonderful Sauvignon Blanc fruit character, the mouth feel has a delicate balance of gentle acidity and defined herbal sophistication.
La Cappuccina Soave D.O.C.
Region: Verona, Italy
In this Soave, we find all the typical characteristics of the classic Soave grape, Garganega, as it grows in Verona. But, especially, we can recognize its area of origin: the black earth of the Alpone Valley. It is a character that infuses every wine from here with pronounced aromatic qualities and precise perfumes, with dominant notes of citrus fruits and mineral, along with hints of tropical fruits and hawthorne. Serving tip: Soave likes to be served very chilled, around 50°F. Certified Organic.
