Trail Rider White and Watermelon Salsa

The wine and recipe of the week is Trail Rider White and Watermelon Salsa.

The 2013 Trail Rider White is a semi-sweet white wine blend by Aubrey Vineyards. It has honey and floral aromas, with pear and apple flavors, similar to a fine German Riesling.

It is a great summer wine to enjoy at a picnic gathering with watermelon salsa or an indoor gathering with Asian cuisines.
