A famous go-to wine for the summer season is Sauvignon Blanc. With multiple brands from which to choose, including several affordable prices, Sauvignon Blanc is the most accessible wine variety. When paired with fresh oysters and various soft cheeses, the acidity of Sauvignon Blanc complements the food. Another refreshing white wine variety is Albariño from the Iberian Peninsula, known for some of the oldest living vines worldwide. Filled with stone fruit notes such as nectarines and served at 45 degrees, Albariño brings a nice acidic balance when paired with the seafood dish of your choice.
Contrary to popular belief, you can and should chill specific varieties of red wine. Put the bottle in the refrigerator while cooking dinner or place it in an ice bucket to reach approximately 55 degrees. For a lighter wine with robust flavor, the summer choice for red wine is Pinot Noir. Another zesty and fruity summer red is Beaujolais, made from Gamay grapes. Often overlooked and sometimes pricey, you can usually find a quality bottle for $10 – 15. A third medium-bodied red wine option with fruit notes is Grenache that pairs perfectly with an outdoor summer barbeque.
Not all rosé wines are the same, and some can have flavors your palate doesn’t prefer. However, there are several affordable options to suit your needs. Rosé wines made in Provence, or those with the same style, are dry, light pink, and not sweet. Provence-style rosé wines are flavorful with assertive red berries and citrus fruits. Rosé wine is perfect for any occasion with its light, refreshing flavor, and when you visit our location at 2800 Lincoln Road, Suite A, in Hattiesburg, MS, our staff can help you select the perfect bottle.
Red and white wine bubbly varieties are available! Lambrusco, referred to by Italians as “breakfast wine,” originates from Northern Italy and pairs well with a frittata. It is dry, barely sweet, and semi-sparkling, but it provides the perfect refreshing fizz for a summer red when served chilled. The cousin of Lambrusco, Prosecco from Northern Italy, is a bubbly pick for mimosas or enjoyed on a blanket in the backyard. Finally, a sparkling rosé can complement any summer picnic or special gathering.
Wine from a can is perfect for summer traveling and areas where glass containers are prohibited. Easily chilled and portable, several varieties are available to enjoy immediately instead of needing to store them in your cellar. When you visit Lincoln Road Package Store, you are sure to find the perfect fit of white, red, rosé, or bubbly canned wine for your next event.
