Rieslings bring a light lemon, apple tone for a hot summer day.
The Seagrass Riesling pairs well with a light pasta or seafood dinner. Your backyard party guests will enjoy a light bodied tropical Pinot, add Moralia Verdejo from Spain to your summer list.
My Hardings Friendly market wine gal pointed me towards a full bodied, red Shiraz. Jim Barry Lodge Hill's Shiraz. The Southern Australian wine pioneers bring a hint of cracked pepper, Wildberry, and cooling eucalyptus, $17.49. You can bring the fruits of Spain and Australia to your summer fun.
