The warm and sultry days of summer call for a refreshing glass of wine. From whites to reds to rosés, the best wines for summer come in an assortment of floral and fruity flavors. Try any one of these summer wine varieties during your next visit to NoJa.
Sauvignon Blanc is considered to be a versatile wine since it is both dry and sweet. It pairs wonderfully with chicken and pasta dishes and sweeter versions go best with dessert. Napa’s Rombauer Sauvignon Blanc has flavors of grapefruit and ripe lime flavors with a zesty clean and bright ending.
The beautiful blush-colored wine has been seen in more glasses recently, and for good reason! It’s crisp, refreshing and pairs well with most dishes. Try Deligeroy Cremant Rosé for a luscious and vibrant wine with essences of candied berries, hazelnuts and honey. Moet and Chandon Rosé Imperial is a bright and fruity wine, a perfect blend to enjoy under the lights of NoJa’s courtyard.
Summer and seafood dishes make for the perfect duo. The light flavors of fish and shrimp can help cool off the hot temps. The delicate notes of a Pinot Grigio pairs wonderfully with seafood meals due to its acidity level. Pair a glass of Livio Felluga Pinot Grigio with NoJa’s panko-crusted fish or our chef’s fresh, daily selection.
Riesling is a very aromatic wine with bright and balanced flavors. A bottle of Dr. Loosen Blue Slate Riesling will complement any one of NoJa’s entrées. Its bright, floral notes will leave a mineral-driven finish on your palate.
Crip and light. Bubby and effervescent. Prosecco is summer in a glass. Request a glass of Canella Prosecco during your next visit to NoJa. The wine has a delightful balance of zesty acidity with a touch of sweetness with its peach, apple, pear and citrus aromas.
Red wines such as Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon are best enjoyed in the cooler months due to their heavy, full-bodied flavors. If you can’t wait ‘til fall for a red, then opt for a glass of Pinot Noir. This type of wine has a light-bodied taste and can be served chilled. Pair a glass of DuMOL, Lange or North Valley Pinot Noir with NoJa’s Skuna Bay Salmon or Maple Leaf Duck Breast.
Savor summer all season long with any of these flavorful and refreshing wines. Stop in and enjoy a glass during your next visit to NoJa. You will love the crisp, vibrant and delicious flavors these wines will bring to your meal.
