Sangria is easy to make and perfect for a hot summer day. Our 2008 Climber White makes particulary good sangria since there are abundant citrus and tropical fruit flavors already present in the wine. The added fruit only enhances the flavors and aromas in the wine.
To make sangria, you need fresh fruit, white wine and a jub large enough to hold about 12 cups (96 oz). The wine and the fruit should be on hand, it's the jug that may be difficult to find!
4 bottles Climber White Wine
1 bottle sparkling water
Cut the lemon, limes, and oranges into slices. Then squeeze juices from the fruit and place slices in the jug.
Dice peaches and place in jug along with the other fruit.
Pour the wine into the jug along with all the fruit. Let sit overnight or for at least 8 hours.
Serve with sparkling water and ice.
You can also add the fruit as a garnish.
