Some people err by drinking white wine that has been chilled to 40 degrees, the temperature of most refrigerators.
White wine that cold will not showcase all of the fruit flavors, which are more prevalent when the temperature reaches the lower 50s.
This New Zealand wine from the Marlborough region is named for the temperature the winemaker says it shows the best — 13 degrees Celsius or 55 degrees Fahrenheit. The dot on the label turns blue when it reaches that temperature.
Thankfully the wine matches the label gimmick. It’s a lovely blend of citrus fruit and orchard fruit with delicious tartness.
Sherry: “Fruity and refreshing citrus with lime and lemon and mineral elements on the finish.” (3.5 stars out of 5)
Chris: “An herbal and grassy bouquet with flavors of lime and grapefruit and a dry, mineral finish.” (3.75 stars out of 5)
Available for $11 to $14.
