wine for shark sightings

Given how many shark sightings and bitings there were this summer, I bring you three great whites (get it?).  

  1. Friedrich Becker Pinot Gris: This looks like a rosé but the coppery hue comes from the slightly pink skin of the Pinot Gris grape. Biodynamic from Germany’s Pfalz region, this has pear and yellow apple but a surprising zingy nuttiness. $25
  2. Quinta de Fonte Souto Branco: Loved this one from the Alentejo region in Portugal. Souto means chestnut, which I can maybe find a few notes of, but more almond and green melon. Made from 75% Arinto, a great Portuguese white grape, and 25% Verdelho. Really delicious. (Only found this online at one place in the US for $32)
  3. Vistorta Conte Brandolini D’Adda Friulano: Friulano is such a great grape to know about—light, floral and raw-almondy, excellent as an aperitivo or with light white fish in summer. $21
