At 3 pm on Sunday in Rio, Germany goes up against Argentina to decide the winner of the World Cup.
At 3 pm in Greenpoint, we’ll be watching… and drinking these wines! Who will win on the field and in the glass!?!?
Caspari Riesling Trocken, Mosel 2012
This estate-bottled Riesling hails from the beautiful village of Enkirch on the banks of the Mosel River. The winery was established nearly 600 years ago by Caspar of Monchof, and remarkably it remains family operated to this day. This easy, summery sipper is dry and refreshing, and comes in a liter bottle. With that kind of bang for your buck, this 5 star Riesling is a great bottle to bring to park picnics, community garden hangs, and rooftop dance parties. $17
Nomade Torrontes, Cafayate 2012
Torrontes is an aromatic grape variety indigenous to Argentina. Nomade’s is a classic style, made from old-vine grapes grown at over 5,000 feet above sea level. Orange blossoms, melon, white peach, and jasmine are just a few things I get right off the bat from this complex and generous white, and it finishes long and bright, leaving a lasting impression. Dynamite with spicy foods! $14
