Scroll down to check out her recommendations and know all about these wines!
This wine has fresh aromas of green apple and lemon sherbet that lead into a crisp and fruity palate. Lush flavours of lime, pineapple and honeydew melon flourish with crisp acidity providing a mineral aspect to the long persistent finish.
All the flavours in the wine remind you of summer fruits, which assures freshness and a cooling effect.
Chill the wine to about 10°C or 12°C, that is to say slightly warmer than a chilled beer, to best enjoy it.
Enjoy this dry and light-bodied wine with light entrée dishes such as fried calamari, tempura prawns, tasty chicken wings or Indian starters such as fish tikka or hara bhara kebab.
This wine has an intense, persistent aroma, fruity (red fruit, ‘marasca’, plum) with hints of vanilla. It’s supple, fresh, well balanced, quite intense and persistent.
This is a red wine that was specifically created for warm-weather countries, where everyone tends to chill their red wines. The regular red wines lose their flavours when chilled. However, this blend of Montepulciano, Sangiovese and Ciliegiolo grapes tastes best when served chilled.
Enjoy this wine best when cooled at 14°C to 16°C.
Excellent with all the typical dishes of traditional Italian cooking, grilled salmon and roasted vegetables.
This wine’s bright cherry pink and has an intense and persistent, delicate fragrance, very fruity with notes of small red fruits (strawberry). A medium-bodied wine, well-balanced, soft and round, very long in the mouth.
What better than a fruit-driven cool rose to enjoy by the poolside or with your brunch? This medium-bodied well-balanced wine is soft and well rounded and makes it the perfect wine for summers.
This wine is best served cold at 12°C to 14°C.
It goes perfectly with vegetarian dishes like a salad, fresh cheeses, dishes of Asian cuisine and white meats like chicken or turkey.
