CASA FERREIRINHA “Planalto” Reserva Dry White Wine 2016

(Douro, Portugal) $12

Here’s what drifted through my mind as I thought about the smell and flavor of this wine: Fresh wind over dry hills. Wild shrubs. Sea salt on extra virgin olive oil. A cold martini with botanical gin and a few fine olives. And then I thought: every shrimp in the world should apply to be served alongside this simple, delicious wine. Planalto Reserva is a great example of an under-loved but fantastic category—dry Portuguese white wine. At this price, a bottle could always be in the fridge. Because you never know when Monday night might roll around.
