If you like Pinot Grigio, try Albariño.
Think of Albariño as Pinot Grigio’s fun, flirty sister. It is crisp and dry like Pinot Grigio, but with its smooth, round mouthfeel, Albariño is less delicate and therefore more versatile. While still light and thirst-quenching enough to be drunk poolside with chips and salsa in hot weather, Albariño has a bracing acidity and a long, luxurious finish that can go the distance with a variety of foods, like barbeque chicken and fish and chips. Seek out Condes de Albarei Albariño 2012, ($15, at liquor stores) for its mouthwatering lemon and ripe peach flavors.
