Con Class Rueda 2009
One of my favorite summer sippers, this is like pouring yourself a big ol’ glass of red grapefruit. Well, assuming you have a big ol’ glass … which, if you don’t, you will immediately go out and buy once you try this Verdejo, Viura, Sauvignon Blanc blend from Rueda Spain. It's crisp, fun, easy to enjoy even on the hottest of days. Seriously. Drink the grapefruit. Be the grapefruit. Around $12.

My focus is good wine on a budget for everyday people. So every Tuesday I’ll post a budget-wine-of-the-moment with simple tasting notes and a recipe pairing. The notes won’t be overly detailed or profound, but they’re not meant to be. Instead, they’re meant to be fun with a bit of insight into some bottles worth exploring. Enjoy!
