Eight Great Summer Sippers

Bring on the lazy days of summer with delicious food, great friends and one – or all – of these super summery wines.

Two Oceans Pinot Grigio – an interesting alternative for those Sauvignon Blanc lovers. Fresh, crisp and well balanced with elegant tropical flavours and a hint of freshly cut grass.

Odd Bins Bin 303 Unwooded Chardonnay – add to the joys of summer by trying to uncover the secret. A fresh palate of lemon zest, peach and dried apricots.

Drostdy-Hof Extra Light Dry White – a wine you never have to apologise for adding ice blocks to! Made from 100% Chenin Blanc grapes, this is an easy drinking, low alcohol option for the health conscious and those watching their kilojoule intake.

Four Cousins Lite Skinny White – the famous Weigh-Less stamp of approval gives the green light, but don’t believe for a second that this wine with its lower alcohol and kilojoules will spoil your fun. A unique lite white, as it is vintage certified and made 100% from Semillon grapes.

Bon Courage Blush – a delightful carbonated sparkling wine with a slight hint of muscat on the nose. Clean and fruity with a refreshing finish. This perky, pink semi-sweet sparkling wine makes it perfect for celebratiing all the good things in life.

Spier Chardonnay/Pinot Noir – this has become a very fashionable take on rosé style wines. A beautiful light, salmon pink in colour with aromas of strawberries and yellow apple and a crisp, fruit finish.

The River Garden Rosé – a true al fresco wine! Watermelon, strawberries and fresh cherries with hints of pink candy floss, marshmallow and Turkish delight dominate the nose. The wine has a fresh, mineral taste with a lingering, creamy mouthfeel and hints of gooseberries, rosewater and red pepper spice.

Haute Cabriere Unwooded Pinot Noir – this unwooded Pinot Noir presents all the natural elegance of this noble cultivar. Think of it as a “red white wine” and enjoy its versatility, served chilled at 12 – 14°C.
