Irish Times Summer Wines

Framingham Classic Riesling 2007: Made in similar manner to the German wine above, this has lovely crisp acidity, an off-dry but never sweet finish, and lovely delicate green fruit. Made to sip in the summer sun. Brumont Gros manseng-Sauvignon 2008, Vin de Pays de Gascogne: This is a really racy crisp number, bursting with aroma, and brimful of zingy lemon and elderflower fruits. Marlborough Sauvignon meets France in a delightful marriage. Serve chilled as an aperitif. Sweet wines: Jurancon, Clos Uroulat 2007: A gorgeous sweet wine that deserves to be better-known. Charles Hours fashions subtle scented wines, full of refreshing pineapple fruits that balance sweetness with a tangy acidity. Perfect with fruit tarts.
