Have I got a selection of Summer wines that go great with grilling!
You’re spending more time outside (do you have the citronella candles lit? Ugh!), and you’re firing up the grill more than you’re using your kitchen. It’s lovely to sit outside on the deck and eat good food and enjoy a chilled glass of wine. Here are a nice selection of reasonably prices summer wines.
2014 Chateau Ste. Michelle ($19)
I’ve been in love with this wine label since the day I got married. Okay, maybe even longer. It has a light-bodied and vibrant flavor with bright apple, lime and orange tones. Personally, I like to serve this with grilled fish. Maybe something with a citrus glaze.
NV Nino Franco Rustico Prosecco ($17)
Everyone who knows me knows I’m a sucker for Prosecco. And you can find this reasonably priced wine almost everywhere. Its flavor is appealing with a mix of stone fruit, flowers and apples. Grilled chicken braised with a spicy and bold BBQ sauce. This wine can hold its own with the zesty flavors.
2015 St. Supéry Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc ($18)
You can’t go wrong with a sauvignon blanc, ever! It’s a wine everyone will love. Guava, passion fruit and peach flavors will delight your taste buds. I’d pair this with pork chops braised with honey orange ginger glaze.
2012 Bodega Norton Reserva Lujan de Cuyo Malbec ($17)
Although I prefer white wine to red in the summer, I highly recommend this Malbec with rich berry, herb and vanilla flavors. I love a good Malbec with salmon. I would also recommend a deliciously tender filet mignon or even a New York strip steak.
