Summer Wine

Is that grass in my glass?

If you've spent any time reading wine reviews, you know the descriptors for a wine's aroma are nearly limitless. Berries, cherries, citrus, flowers...these appear on the regular. If you enjoy Sancerre or Pouilly-Fumé, then yes, you're right to pick up grassy aromas typical of the Sauvignon Blancs from those French regions. But beyond these descriptors lies a whole world of aromas in summer wines you may never have considered.

Lychee - Classic Aroma of the Summer Wine: Gewurztraminer

Lychee | Gewurztraminer

This is the classic aroma of Gewurztraminer, an aromatic white which has found its true home in the Alsace region of France. It's made styles from dry to sweet, all of which explode from the glass with intense tropical perfume. Pair this summer wine with spicy Indian or Thai food for a real treat.

Mint & Sage | Viognier

These beautiful herbal scents can be found wafting their way out of a glass of Viognier, making it the perfect summer wine. Doesn't that sound like perfection on a hot summer day? Viognier is one of the most important white grapes of the Northern Rhone but you'll find complex, full-flavored examples from around the world.

Tar & Roses - Classic Aroma of the Summer Wine: Nebbiolo

Tar & Roses | Nebbiolo

There's plenty of room for red wine in the summertime, especially when it's as fragrant and captivating as Nebbiolo. Classic tar and rose aromas practically jump from the glass. The star of Barolo and Barbaresco - from the Piedmont region of Northern Italy - Nebbiolo makes an excellent summer wine, pairs well with food, and is an intriguing alternative to Cabernet.
