with spring’s chimes come crisp wines
After being introduced to Dalla Terra through a friend, I found myself missioning to the heart of Covent Garden often a borough I don’t visit too often as I prefer secluded, quiet spaces. Though Dalla Terra sits in a courtyard and it’s the perfect place to go for an afterwork wine or girls evening. An astonishing wine collection, mostly from Italy though samples of the world, and a simple beautiful food menu-it never would disappoint or even intimidate. So it was only natural to pay a visit to ask about their suggestions for spring…
A popular request all around the year, chardonnay is a green-grape white
wine variety that originates from France. It comes in two varieties, one
that is oak-age with a bit of a denser flavor that appeals to men. The second
being stainless steel, which produced is a crisp, floral and citrusy flavor-
popular among the women.
An early-ripening white wine with a full body and moderate-acidity.
With flavors and aromas of yellow fruits, spices like ginger and white pepper, and nuts.
A yellow-green grape variety coming from the central part of Italy.
It’s a softer white wine with aromas that are elegant with touches of nuts
and citrus and sometimes scents of almonds.
Grown in the provinces of Asti and Alessandria, it is moderately bodied with
flavors of lime. The wine comes with crisp flavors that are ideally paired with
its originating region’s dishes of freshly caught fish.
One of the most prominent white wines in the sparkling variety. They are commonly
dry and undergo a secondary fermentation in a stainless steel tank. It is
particularly sweet and goes flat faster in comparison to champagne.
