Take the hassle out of summer entertaining with this food-friendly selection
There are two bank holiday weekends just around the corner and whether you’re planning a picnic,
barbecue or dinner party, this collection will help kick off your summer in style.
The whites: Sauvignon Blanc lovers will appreciate Sincérité from Sancerre’s
renowned Joseph Mellot and Chile’s citrussy Casa Elena Reserva Sauvignon
Blanc. If seafood is on the menu, try a glass of Conde de Cron Vino Blanco from
Spain’s Verdejo grape or Borgo Thaulero Pecorino with zippy lemon and herby
flavours. Gooseberry-fresh Domaine de Ménard Cuvée Marine is perfect for
picnics with its handy screwcap and rounding off the whites is Clefs du Pontif
Marsanne Viognier - sunshine-in-a-glass from the South of France.
The reds: Get set for the barbecue season with fruity, rich reds like Clefs du
Pontif Grenache Syrah, Portuguese favourite Atlântico and Italy’s Il Fagiano,
“a beautiful, dark, inky wine” (online review). Next, you have two barrel-aged
Spanish gems – berry-scented Conde de Cron and smooth, vanilla-edged Viña
del Perdon Reserva. Chile’s Alterra Cabernet Sauvignon Special Reserve is
guaranteed to impress guests with its rich black fruits and toasty oak. And last
but not least is elegant Château Bernot from a 16th century Bordeaux estate.
