WOTM (Wine of the Month) – March 2016
Spring has officially sprung!
It’s time to start thinking about our summer wines! When you’re sunning on the beach, sitting on the deck, or enjoying a picnic in the park, what goes better than a tasty summer wine? We have a lot of your summer favorites in stock.
It’s tough to pick out a favorite summer wine. Red folks (you know who you are) like what they like (and they’ll drink it when the want to)! But for seasonal wines, we find that whites (like a Moscato, Pinot Grigio, or Riesling) can go a long way. Of course, our fruit wines are always a hit too! Some of your favorites are the Pomegranate Zinfandel, Peach Chardonnay, and Green Apple Riesling.
But we have to pick one. So, without further ado, this month’s wine is: Sangria Zinfandel. From the Island Mist line: “A sweet and easy-drinking summertime wine, a medley of seasonal fruits that can now be enjoyed year round. Your nose will be enlightened by scents of orange, lemon, and lime that will marry with cherries on your tongue to create a sensational sipper that balances sweet and citrus flavors.” A great way to enjoy the dog days of summer!
As always, we suggest that you age white wines about 3 months (and reds 6+ months). Unlike our reds and our whites, you don’t have to age the fruit wines, they’re drinkable immediately.
