Top 10 wines in the US press3rd July, 2013 by Andy Young
Will Lyons picks out a wine which is “what great California Chardonnay is all about” while Rebecca Murphy recommends a wine that “has everything you could want from a rosé”.
Writing in the Dallas Morning News, Murphy recommends a wine “that was originally developed for the US market, but now can be found around the world.
“It’s made by a cooperative winery with 350 growers located 55 miles north of Madrid in Calatayud, a rugged, rocky wine region in northeastern Spain. The growers farm healthy, flavourful grapes and the winemaker doesn’t let winemaking tricks get in the way. It’s a successful strategy.”
In the Washington Post Dave McIntyre is one of the few US wine writers to give a nod to 4 July, as he recommends five “all-American wines” which, he writes, “reflect the growth of high-quality wine throughout the country.”
