Coastal vineyards around the globe produce remarkably diverse, refreshing whites that pair beautifully with grilled fish. A few favorites:
2007 txomin etxaniz ($26)
Getaria, a quaint Basque fishing village in northern Spain, is home to Txakoli, light-bodied, crisp and lively effervescent wines like this lime-scented one.
2007 cape mentelle sauvignon blanc sémillon ($18)
This peachy blend from Australia’s Margaret River region is made with grapes grown near the Indian Ocean.
2006 ajello majus grillo catarratto ($10)
Two indigenous grape varieties from Sicily’s southwestern coast are combined to make this bright, nutmeg-spiced white.
