Which summer wine will it be?

Cool, fresh rosé and white wine or strong red wine for your barbecue?

Light and young white wines, fruity rosés and sparkling wines/MCCs are refreshing in warm weather. For the barbecue, a nice red wine is the perfect accompaniment to the meat. Here is the list of wines you should not miss this summer.

In summer, you can not do without good wine at an aperitif, light lunch or rich barbeque/braai menu. To cool down, we recommend a glass of white wine or rosé. If you like bubbles, you can of course reach for MCCs. Note that in this case, the whites are served at a lower temperature. A brief overview of what the right serving temperature is:

  • White wines between 8 and 10 degrees
  • Rosé wines between 10 and 12 degrees
  • Sparkling wines/MCCs between 6-8 degrees

What kind of wine do you drink with grilled steak? The classic is red wine. We recommend strong and tannin-rich red wines from the grape varieties Cabernet Franc or Cabernet Sauvignon as well as Malbec, Pinotage or Shiraz. The roasted aromas from grilling harmonize with the tannins of these red wines.

Surprise your best friends, favorite colleagues and family with the right summer wine on these warm summer days.

Sunny yellow with honeyed highlights, this wine flows into the glass. The nose reveals a beguiling aroma of melon, peach, guava, and wet stone.

This wine shows a deep plum color. The nose is inviting with red currant and black cherry combined with subtle spice and vanilla. The palate is a layered of black berry fruit wrapped in soft, rich tannins. Notes of rosemary and olive tapenade add a pleasing herbal freshness.
