A satisfying thirst quencher, this engaging, low-alcohol (9 percent) bottling is the perfect antidote for summer's steamy spell. Bright and dry with an attractive spritz on the palate, this white wine offers aromas of green melon, tart apple and fresh cucumber followed by perky flavors of lemon and lime zest, tropical fruit notes and a pleasing minerality. Drink it as an aperitif, in white sangria or with seafood, salads, grilled fish, paella and fresh fruit. Buy it at: Cork & Bottle, The Wine Seller, Elio's Wine Warehouse, Schiro's Cafe & Bar, Bacchanal and Dorignac's. Drink it at: Bayona, Cafe Minh, Ecocafe, Schiro's Cafe & Bar, d.b.a. and Mojo Lounge. — Brenda Maitland
