(KCBS) – KCBS Food and Wine Editor Narsai David reviews some perfect summer wines: a Sauvignon Blanc and Moscato Allegro.

2010 Kenwood Sauvignon Blanc / Sonoma County

Appealing aromas of tropical fruits, citrus, and herbs, all melded together into a perfectly balanced wine… just in time for summer. Enough herbal and floral notes to say this is Sauvignon Blanc but not powerful enough to hit you over the head. Fine acidity for balance and no oak to complicate matters. It’s all in the fruit. Fine price $12.00.

2010 Moscato Allegro

Made of Muscat Canelli in the classic style of the Italian Moscatos. Flowers and the unmistakable fruity aromas of the Muscat Canelli Grape. High acidity, very low alcohol. The brief period of fermentation keeps the alcohol low and keeps the natural grape sweetness high. An ice cube and a splash of carbonated water makes for the most refreshing and appealing summertime wine spritzer. Ideal for fruit desserts. $12.00.
