IF YOU’RE SERV­ING ap­pe­tiz­ers…

Food & Drink - - WINE WINTER WHITES -

One-bite snacks tend to have creamy, fatty and salty el­e­ments: think of any­thing from a rich, cheesy dip or cros­tini to crispy, fried arancini or shrimp. Wines that are bright and re­fresh­ing make great coun­ter­points, es­pe­cially those with a light to medium body and the broad flavour-match­ing po­ten­tial of re­fresh­ing tree-fruit and cit­rus notes. The qual­ity known as min­er­al­ity, which some­times has a wet-stones smell or an al­most steel­y­seem­ing flavour or fin­ish, makes a fine com­ple­ment to ap­petite-sat­ing first bites.
