Wine(s) of the Week – 2 wines for hot summer days

Arca  Nova Colheita Harvest 2014 from Portugal’s Vinho Verde is a bright, flavorful wine for hot and steamy summer days. Relax and enjoy hints  of lemongrass, lime juice, and apricots with herbal notes. Priced around $9 retail, it makes a perfect by the glass offering for summer wine lists. If you love rosés, you’ll want to try Carmela Benegas Cabernet Franc, 2104, made by Federico Benegas Lynch who named it for his daughter, whom he calls “dusk at the winery at springtime,” and “the simplest and most noble companion.”  The wine is a rosé from 100% Cabernet Franc, from Mendoza, Argentina. It is 13.5 ABV.
