Cool Wines for Summertime

Posted June 30th, 2010 | 0 Comments

With Summer officially in full swing it's time to lighten up a little. There are few things greater than enjoying a  glass of wine surrounded by beautiful sunshine. Summer is the highest grossing time for wine sales and as such, most people are looking for good value and younger, lighter wines.


It's likely no surprise that whites are favoured during the Summer months but did you know that rosés are one of the best sellers as well? Rosés are fantastically refreshing on a hot day. In the white category some popular choices are Australian or New Zealand sauvignon blanc and South African chenin blanc.


But that doesn't mean you have to forgo a fantastic red. There are plenty of fabulous reds to enjoy during the hot times. You'll want to look for light to medium, young vibrant reds with good acidity such as a California pinot noir or a Chilean merlot. True to form with their reputation for being versatile, both of these pair very well with a wide range of foods.


Finally, It could be said that sparkling wine is an essential for every season. It's an obvious requirement in the Winter for the holiday season and of course for New Years Eve. Spring welcomes it for Easter and Mother's Day celebrations and then there are the summertime festivities. Sparkling wines are so pleasantly thirst-quenching on a hot Summer night. It could be said that sparkling wine is an all season winner and a particularly hot seller during the Summer season. 


While there are never any rules where your own personal preferences are concerned with wine, from day to day, month to month and season to season, the one thing that is certain is that there is always a special wine to get you through.
