We'll try not to sound TOO fired up for this wine, because you know, it's warm enough already. But the reality is that there is exactly one wine you should be drinking right now, while the mercury hovers near 100.

Chateau de Rey Si's Plau 2016

When Dan imported a whole load of this last month he might not have appreciated exactly how useful it would be during weather like this. White. Ice Cold. Refreshing. Slightly Spritzy.

And just $10.

Si's Plau is made in a typical wine style in Catalonia (in this case, the French side near Perpignan)--an exuberant, youthful, slightly spritzy white, with low alcohol (important) and ready to drink anytime. We've sold wines like this from Spain for the prior few years and waltzed them right out the door. We expect nothing less right here.

Chateau de Rey has become a real mainstay at the shop. Cathy Sisquelle's red and rosé (plus our house favorite dry Muscat) have hit many recylcing bins over the last six months, but this summer white takes the cake. Made from early ripening grapes like Macabeo and Grenache Blanc and bottled with a scoche of trapped carbonics, the wine is cristalline and aromatic with fresh cut flowers, lemon/lime, and nectarines.

Cathy wants you to drink it ice cold as an apéro, or with a big plate of fresh seafood. Or, because you just need something to unscrew, pour a glass, and then rest the cool bottle against the back of your neck!
