Barefoot Refresh Crisp White (California)

First, allow me to say thanks to The Other Joe, who sends regular requests for new wine reviews. He’s kinda like my conscience, except a lot nicer to me than I think I deserve.

Second, allow me to remind ya’ll of my Instagram feed, where you can find images of my daily glass and occasional micro-reviews. While Instagram is quick and easy, it’s also a lazy woman’s excuse for not writing real reviews.

Third, I concur with Laura Mayes at Blog con Queso, that this is the Summer of the Spritzer. And I agree with her – primarily because I just bought the equivalent of a spritzer in a bottle.

Here ends the numbered list.

photoEnter Barefoot Refresh Crisp White, which bills itself as a “vibrant, light-bodied wine.” Which it is. Light-bodied. Very.

At only 9% abv and a subtle frizzante, it feels more like a spritzer than your my regular glass of chilled white wine. And I can easily imagine a few chunks of peach or red grapefruit adorning my glass to complement the subtle pear/green apple flavor.

It ventures a little close to Jolly Rancher territory, sadly, but if you keep “spritzer” in mind, it works.

So, go ahead and try it and let me know what you think. I’m not completely sold. Though I might be persuaded.
