The summertime is an excellent time to enjoy some wines that are great served chilled for a refreshing and simple cocktail choice. As the days of summer wind down, don’t miss out on the opportunity to unwind with some of the best wines to enjoy in warm weather. Have a wine picnic or chill a bottle for a late-night summer dinner in your backyard to explore the flavors of these popular summer selections:
- Moscato: Moscato is an Italian wine that has been gaining more popularity in recent years with affordable bottles available from some notable wineries. The light, playful characteristics of Moscato are attributed to its fruity flavor profile and light carbonation to complement the sweetness of this wonderful white wine.
- Rose: The bad reputation of Rose wine that has been made by White Zinfandel does not do justice to the sensational Rose wines available today. The beautiful pink color of Rose wines comes from brief exposure to the grape skins during the wine making process, which produces a dry, brightly flavored wine. Roses are produced in wineries around the world with some notable varieties in sparkling Rose from Sonoma County.
- Zinfandel: Zinfandel is a rule breaker with its full bodied flavor and dark, seductive flavors. It may not seem an obvious choice for summer drinking, but the less oaky varieties can actually be served chilled for a surprisingly refreshing pairing with grilled fare. The brighter fruit flavors of the wine will pop at a chilled temperature, giving your palate a new spin on a favorite American wine.
