Wines each week: Three light reds for summer time
Heavy reds on warm days could be a bit much, but chilling lighter red wines properly can also add another dimension to wine drinking….
The Society’s Exhibition Cote De Brouilly 2015
An attractive village cru Beaujolais in the Society’s brilliant own label range – designed as benchmark good examples of styles and grapes. This can be a medium bodied, larger flavoured Beaujolais but nonetheless advantages of finding yourself in the fridge door for 30 minutes approximately, simply to highlight the colourful fruit from the Gamay. Drink with butterflied roast guinea fowl, charcuterie or soft cheeses.
From the Loire…..
Bouvet Rubis Demi Sec
Sparkling red isn’t observed in the United kingdom, however this new accessory for the Regal range will help change that. An in-depth red colour, just slightly tannic, with full flavours of blueberries and damsons, this really is off-dry, instead of sweet, as well as an absolutely sublime match for fruity, sweet dessert or perhaps a summer time pudding. Don’t drink freezing: an hour or so within the fridge should suffice.
£11.99, Majestic (or £9.99 for six)
Brown Brothers Tarrango 2014
A mix between your Touriga Nacional and white-colored Sultana grapes from Australia’s Victoria region. Youthful and fresh, with refreshing red berry fruit flavours, only a hint of spice along with a dry finish, this needs decent chilling: consider it as being more a complete-bodied rose than the usual red. Ideal for barbecues, tapas and picnic propagates.
