Light wines for summer
If your attention is now turning to wines that reflect the season and our usual lighter summer cuisine, you’d do well to seek out these gems.
2014 Villa Maria Rosé
From Villa’s popular private bin range comes a new edition — Private Bin Light. Lighter in alcohol but not in style, it is a response to consumer demand for lighter, more accessible and approachable wines especially for summer daytime drinking. Serve chilled to bring out cranberry and strawberry characters. A blend of pinot gris and merlot fruit, this is delicate, smooth and refreshing. Try with summer salads.
2013 Brancott Estate Living Land Series Chardonnay
The Living Land series of organic wines includes pinot gris, sauvignon blanc and pinot noir. They’re designed to celebrate the efforts of Brancott Estate to protect the natural environment, particularly the NZ falcon. This is a perfectly formed chardonnay with the right balance of fruit and oak. A great wine, at a great price.
2013 Coopers Creek Marlborough Pinot Gris 'The Pointer'
A wine that embraces summer with ease and is food friendly across a wide range of dishes. It is off-dry in style with distinctive flavours of spice, apple, pear and a dash of forest floor. There’s a lovely minerality and this wine is perfect with almost everything but especially Asian cuisine.
