LA Times recommends Boutari Moschofilero and Santorini for summer

This just in from the Los Angeles Times and one of our favorite wine writers (and one of the nicest people in the biz) Patrick Comiskey:

“White wines at the ready for summer: Stock up for seasonal meals with a variety from the Mediterranean, Australia, Chile, Oregon, good old California and more.”

I’ve heard it said that a good summer wine is like sunshine in a bottle. There’s some truth to that: The ideal wine will have the brilliant, drip-down-your-chin succulence of freshly picked fruit, as unadorned as a cloudless sky. But it’s probably more accurate to say that a good summer wine is sunshine’s foil, capable of turning back the day’s dazzling heat with the cut of its coolness, the quenching prickle of its acidity, the bite of its finish.

In a Mediterranean mood

Probably no region on Earth embodies summer better than the Mediterranean. In outdoor cafes and on beaches from Costa Brava to Kalamata, Mediterranean culture seems drenched in sunlight, and for each port of call there are several white wines on hand to quench thirsts.

Nearly every white wine in Greece serves this purpose; indeed Boutari, its largest wine company, has about a dozen by itself, but their nervy Moschofilero (about $16) or their sun-kissed blend from the island of Santorini (about $20) are worth grabbing.

    I wish I was at Petros in Manhattan Beach with a bottle of Moschofilero right now!
