Six New White Wines for Summer

E-mail Print PDF
There are, in this world, some thought-provoking questions that will probably never be satisfactorily answered: Is light a particle or a wave? In a matchup between the 1927 Yankees and the 1986 Mets, who would win? What sort of wine is best drunk in the summer?

As we leap into the summer season and start thinking about lighter warmer-weather meals and the traditional dairy foods of Shavuot, kosher-wine lovers will once again be contemplating their white-wine options. Two grape varieties that have much to offer, both in terms of range and food pairing adaptability, are Chenin Blanc and Riesling.

The Chenin Blanc grape is believed to have been first cultivated in the Loire Valley of France in the ninth century, though it has long since migrated across the globe from California to South Africa, and most recently to very good effect in Israel where it seems to grow nicely with the climate.
