Officially Summer Wine Time

by PJ Lacey

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.
