White Wines, Like a Crisp Sauvignon Blanc : A crisp Sauvignon Blanc will cool you off and make you feel weightless in the summer heat. These wines are light on your tongue and fruity, making them a refreshing alternative to red wine. You can find a quality Sauvignon Blanc at most wine and liquor stores.
Fermented Chardonnay Wines: A fermented Chardonnay that is traditionally fermented with wild yeasts offers a smoky, herbal flavor that is full of rich lemon-curd flavors. Therefore, this is a great summer dinner wine. Ask your local wine store for more on how to pair this delicious wine with your summer diet.
A Fruity Rosé: If you prefer to wait until the heat dies down to enjoy the outdoors, then consider a spicy, but sweet, strawberry rosé as a desert wine. Crios de Susana Balbo, for example, is an Argentine winemaker who produces a wonderful Rosé.
Shiraz : A fruit-infused Shiraz can be enjoyed during an evening sunset, as a desert wine, or with any summer barbeque dish. Shiraz wines made with berries are traditionally summer wines because of the abundance of blackberries, strawberries, and blueberries in the warmer season. These wines typically offer an earthy, but tart, taste and give off a sweet aroma.
