So, what are the best wines for summer?

Summer evokes many emotions thanks to the warmer weather, longer days, and general positivity the season conjures. Our eating and drinking habits change accordingly, so we have a few summertime wine tips when it comes to the perfect glass or bottle of wine. 

Choose light-bodied wines

Light-bodied wines are perfect for summer because they are refreshing and easy to drink. Lighter wines are also moreish and perfect for vibrant bars and alfresco dining. 

Our top choice is a light rosé, and the La Roseraie Bordeaux Rosé by Château de Parenchère won’t disappoint. It’s delicate and subtle and offers excellent freshness. Although light, the award-winning rosé offers floral aromas of hawthorn, lychee and rose and is so easy to drink!

Choose wines with high acidity

High-acidity wines help to cut through the fat of summer foods, such as barbecue and grilled meats. The Bordeaux Blanc-Sec is a white wine with intense white and citrus fruit aromas. It is fresh and round on the palate and is expertly balanced. It’s ‘the perfect’ white wine that’s won many awards.

Choose wines with fruit nuances

Fruity wines are perfect for summer because they are refreshing and enjoyable. Our top choice is Bordeaux Clairet, a particularly aromatic wine with deep red fruit. It is more substantial than traditional rosés, with a good body and exuberant fruitiness. Don’t be fooled by the rich colour, as this fantastic rosé has a beautiful roundness and pronounced structure, making it a perfect wine for friends and food.  

Choose affordable wines

Longer days and lazy weekends mean that friends are out more enjoying life. As a result, sales of alcoholic beverages, including wine, shoot up in the summer, so our best tip is to offer more affordable, quaffable wines. Here’s why Bacchus Wines PLDC are the top independent wine merchant. Our wines are affordable but memorable. We’re convinced that you won’t want to shop elsewhere when you try our wines!
