Top 10 wines in the US press

Will Lyons recommends a “superb” wine with a “spicy acidity and savoury finish” while Katie Kelly Bell picks out “one of the best values in white wine on the market.”

US PressWriting in the , Lyons addresses the issue of summer wines. “As the temperature rises”, he wrote, “our palates change and the question of what to drink becomes very real.”

He added: “My list of summer drinking includes Riesling from the slopes of the Rhine in Germany, Muscadet grown at the western end of France’s Loire Valley and extremely pale and dry rosé from Provence. When it gets really hot, factors such as refreshment and freshness come to the fore, trumping complexity and maturity. In short, we crave a glass of bracing, food-friendly wine. In this category, especially in terms of price and alcohol level, one wine trumps them all: Vinho Verde.”

“This youthful, ever-so-slightly spritzy, pale white wine from the northernmost wine-growing region in Portugal is ideal for keeping in the fridge, ready to be pulled out at the appropriate moment.”
