Fruity and casual May wine has put a spring in our step


April 25, 2007|By ROB KASPER

I vowed that I would never put pieces of fruit in my wine. But as May approached, I found myself dropping fresh strawberries in glasses of white wine and joyfully downing the mixture.

There were two explanations for this behavior.

Without woodruff

Best Herb-Free:

Meyer-Fonne Gentil d'Alsace, 2005. $12.80.

Gorgeous golden wine that is sweet without being cloying. Crisp finish that pairs well with fruit and cheese.

Ameztoi Getariako Txakolina, 2006. $14.99.

A crisp wine from Spain's Basque Country. A floral aroma reminiscent of chenin blanc. Pleasing acid tang; great partner for light meats and buffet fare.

Palazzone Orvieto Terre Vineate, 2005. $10.40.

A faintly floral, medium body. Well-balanced wine. Strawberries soaked in this wine never tasted better.
