Try a nice rosé.
In the past rosé wines have gotten a bad rap as most people have only been exposed to inferior or sickly sweet rosé. But, a well-crafted, dry rosé can be a wine of beauty: crisp, complex, refreshing, with sprightly fruit, and often with charming spicy notes and good acid that is admirable. They pair well with poultry, fish, pork or ham, spicy Latin or Asian dishes, even lamb or venison.
Any of these would make an excellent choice:
- Luna di Luna Pink Merlot
- MARQUÉS DE CÁCERES Rioja Rosado
- Little Penguin White Shiraz
- Stone Hill Blush
- Toad Hollow Eye of Toad (one of my personal favorites!)
- Beringer White Merlot
- Beringer White Zinfandel
- Livingston Cellars Red Rosé
- Livingston Cellars White Zinfandel
