Barren Ridge's Tinkling Spring certainly belongs on the table year round.  Blending Vidal Blanc, Viognier, Traminette and Riesling, this is a complex wine with layers ot tropical tones throughout.  Assistant Winemaker Armandine Fabre told The Richmond Times-Dispatch, "The 2009 Tinkling Spring is a powerful blend with complexity and just the right balance of richness and focus."

 

The wine presents in the glass with a light straw color.  The nose reminds of the bite of a freshly picked green apple.  The crisp attack has nice acidic balance without being sharp.  Lemon grass tones lead to a midpalate that widens to provide granny smith apple as well as pink grapefruit undertones.  The bright, clean slightly citrusy finish lingers ever so slightly.

 

While this is a great "summer" wine, the bright fruit and cooling influences of the blend makes this a versatile pairing wine.  I suggest serving chilled (45°F) with a nice bowl of roasted red pepper soup, a big green salad, or roasted chicken with rosemary potatoes.
