Wine Wednesday: Summer Sangria


Leave it to me to try a wine called Summer Sangria in the dead of winter. In my defense I could use a bit of summer right now.

By the way Sharrott Winery is not aware of this review and did not endorse it in any way.

Summer Sangria is a pre-mixed wine cocktail. It is a sweet red combined with citrus flavors. I loved the flavor. Very fruity. You could taste the citrus. And as promised it was a Sangria not a wine. Since it was already perfectly balanced all I had to do was add some fruit garnish and drink.

I almost wish I had served it frozen (slushy). I think it would have been even better. I liked it but I have to admit it wasn't one of the more memorable wines I've had. It could have been that I've had better sangrias. It was nicely mixed and well balanced but it didn't have a lot of different fruit flavors. Just citrus and wine.

Summer Sangria might be worth a second sip when the summer hits. Oh also one bottle only topped of 3 glasses. Consider that when buying for a party.

  1. This shows me that I am not along in trying to bring summer into my life...we have lots of snow on the ground and I am dreaming of beaches and sand. Although I am not a fan or wine (prefer beer) I like to have some in the house for my friends --- I may buy this one and have them try it.
    Thanks!

  2. Thanks for the review! I'm not a big drinker, but I do occasionally like to try a sangria or mixed drink. I hope you find something extra yummy to share with us in the future!

  3. I made a white sangria at my Bunco Christmas party this past December. It's just white zin, mixed with white grape juice (peach works too) and sliced lemons, limes and oranges. It was a huge hit!

  6. I am looking forward to trying this.......most Sangria is like a wine so you have to mix it with other ingredients to make it taste like real Sangria!
