Sitting in the garden lighting the barbecue or sheltering under the gazebo while it pours down? Chances are you’ll need a glass of wine from the sunshine state to remind you of summer. Our Master of Wine, Keith Isaac, recommends his summer favorites.

Cycles Gladiator Pinot Grigio 2011, California

This bright, zingy Californian white will lift your spirits. Its dry, crisp style with hints of ripe melon and citrus is well rounded and beautifully balanced. Winemaker Paul Clifton has fashioned a perfect summer barbecue wine, but can’t do anything about the rain. His grapes are sourced across California from some of the best Pinot Grigio vineyards in the State and give a wine with more character and zip than many Italian examples.

Cycles Gladiator Pinot Noir 2010, California

Poultry, fish, garden salads and meaty barbecues, the diversity of summer eating is something we all look forward to. But finding a red wine to fit all those deliciously light and seasonal summer dishes can be tricky. You’ll want a wine to suit all those flavors as well as your guests! Try a pinot noir which is characteristically light in style but with layers of bramble fruits, new leather and aromatic spices. When you find a good one that’s affordable, it’s worth making a note of. Cycles Gladiator Pinot Noir from California has layers of red fruits and tantalising spice aromas typical of pinot noir from the sunshine state, it’s the perfect summer red.
