Temps de Flors 2010 Review

Wine of the Day: 2010 Temps de Flors

We're kicking off our July wine series with a fruity Spanish varietal that we feel would be perfectly at home at your next picnic in the park.

Wine preferences vary greatly at Sugar HQ, from those of us who gleefully imbibe it all to others who are more steadfast in their dedication to specific regions, grapes, and varietals. Yet we all agreed that this wine — inspired by the Temps de Flors garden festival in Girona, Catalan — is the sort of wine that can comfortably bridge the gap between devotees to sweeter whites and those whose mantra leans toward "the drier, the better." At $14, the 2010 Temps de Flors is a great value for sipping. It'd also make for an ideal white sangria. Thanks to Gewurztraminer and Muscat, it has strong floral notes that would complement stone fruits and fortified spirits.

One last aside: some connoisseurs may find this offensive, but we see nothing wrong with adding an ice cube to a glass of this on a particularly sweltering day; the wine's fragrant notes can handle the tempering that cold provides.

Apparently we're in good company when it comes to occasionally keeping cool by plonking a cube of ice in a glass of white wine — David Lebovitz and Jaques Pepin have been know to occasionally indulge in this somewhat taboo (at least in the wine world) behavior: http://www.davidlebovitz.com/2012/05/how-i-eat/. That said, I wouldn't recommend this with a particularly precious or delicately flavored bottle. While I quite enjoyed the Temps de Flors, it's not particularly subtle in flavor or exorbitantly expensive; the ice only enhances the crispness, and therefore I see nothing wrong with occasionally breaking the rules here.
