Wine: Sunnier Californians
2017 Unti Dry Creek Valley Cuvée Blanc ($30). This Sonoma Valley blend “leads with scents of lemon and sourdough” before offering a salty tang and notes of green apple.
2015 Farmstrong Suisun Valley White Field Blend ($22). In this grenache blanc blend, “lemon-lime aromas coexist with lovely peach flavors, both framed by a salty mineral underpinning.”
2017 Amplify Santa Barbara County ‘Duke & Ella’ ($23). Here, unripe riesling helps create a “peach-scented hothouse flower.” Serve it cold with dry cheeses. ■
