Light White

Like a lightning bolt in your mouth, whites in this style are the wine equivalent to a lager; they’re good because they’re refreshing. “Dry”, “Crisp” “Tart” and “Zippy” are all synonymous with “zesty.” They’re usually best enjoyed young, within a year or two of the vintage, to preserve the fresh fruity flavors and mouth-watering acidity. Of all the wine styles, dry and crisp whites often have the best bang for the buck, with great examples available between $10 - $15. Of course, you can find some incredibly badass higher-end options if this style is your thing.
