More acidity, minerality and freshness were the ‘mores’ I had in mind. Less alcohol and richness completed my mental image of the perfect wine for summertime highs, and a nice lunch of shrimp tacos, or even better, dinner of scallops, sea bass, and a nice greek salad, fava beans optional. So what exactly did I have in mind when I passed through my wine shop’s doors? Five wines to be exact, each of which would have been a vacation in a bottle. Five glorious wines to make summer’s heat more bearable, and summer’s menus come alive!
