Escolha Branco - THE ATLANTIC

When summer comes to the city with all its might, one yearns for Atlantic winds blowing coolingly through the street canyons, but since Berlin is not by the sea, there are only a few wines that carry the cooling breeze - like the Vinho Verde from the green north of Portugal. Anselmo Mendes is the undisputed master winemaker of this fantastic region. His white wines are never insignificant despite their sparkling lightness, have structure and character, even if they do not impose themselves impertinently. From the classic grape varieties Alvarinho, Loureiro and Avesso, Mendes has put together his Cuvée Muros Antigos Escolha. Beautifully dry, slightly spicy with hints of green apples. If you want a little more weight, try the Contacto Alvarinho. And while you're at Berlin's Portugal specialists: Adega de Moncao's tingling red Vinho Verde is a cooled, rustic, invigorating drink with grilled meat.   ULRICH AMLING
