For the months of May & June, we’ve selected a fizz, white, rosé and red that we know are just perfect for those al fresco lunches and summer sipping (if the sun decides to appear!). These will also be included in our ‘Summer 6’ offer so you get chance to try them all. Okay, here goes:
Fizz – from the innovative Fowles vineyard team found in the Strathbogie Ranges, Australia – ‘Are You Game?’ Sparkling Vermentino is light and fresh with apple flavours and mineral characters. Refreshingly crisp and dry with layers of fine and lively bubbles (it has a crown cap closure – easy for picnics!)
White – this wine illustrates summer perfectly. A wonderfully fresh Loureiro and Alvarinho blend from the heart of Portugal’s Vinho Verde boasting aromas of ripe citrus fruit, nectarine and freshly cut apple.
Rosé – this was a tricky choice – but we’ve gone for Simonsig Chenin Blanc, Pinotage rosé from South Africa. A light strawberry colour, very fruity (think red berries and melon) and easy drinking, just perfect for that summer salad, salmon or sushi.
Red – we make no apologies for choosing this again, which just shows how much we love it. It’s maybe our favourite summer red? It’s the delightful Monte del Frà Bardolino from the sunny shores of Lake Garda – pack this with your summer picnic, even give it a little chill first – light bodied, aromas and flavours of red cherry, strawberry, raspberry, cranberry, cinnamon, cloves and black pepper
