It’s been hot, really hot, around the south eastern part of Australia recently. Not just warm, but ear-wax meltingly hot! So we thought we’d offer up some wines that go well when the mercury is busting through the top of the thermometer. The All Saints Moscato is light on alcohol, with a light, bright fizz and a touch of sweetness and goes beautifully chilled down or even served over chipped ice. Wirra Wirra’s Mrs. Wigley Grenache Rosé might be your style if you’re not after a white but the day is just a bit too warm for a big red. And to round things out, a Pinot Noir is the obvious choice for a red during the hot months, and Paringa Estate’s Estate Pinot Noir is one of the very, very best you can buy.
This week’s recommendations are:
- All Saints Moscato 2009 ($16-18)
- Wirra Wirra Mrs. Wigley Grenache Rosé 2009 ($16-$19)
- Paringa Estate Estate Pinot Noir 2008 ($55-60)
Cheers… and happy wine buying!
