Summer wine recommendations

25 Jul 2019

Summer has been wonderful here in Jersey so far. We've seen record-breaking temperatures and long periods of uninterrupted sunshine, followed by warm, dry evenings. 

With all this beautiful weather around, you can be sure the wine cellar has seen a lot of action. And as we prepare for another week of sunshine, we thought we'd let you in on some of our best received recommendations from this year's wine list. 

Affordable, yet delicious

A white and rosé that won't break the bank but will leave your tastebuds buzzing with flavour. 

#30 Sauvignon Blanc, Tokomaru - New Zealand

Classic grass and gooseberry flavours and a touch of tropical fruits. It's tough to beat a Sav on a summer day, and this flavoursome drop should tick all the boxes. 

#47 Pinot Grigio Blush, II Conto Vecchio - Italy

Very light pink in colour and a touch of sweetness make this a classic Pinot Grigio with a twist. If you want something not too dry and very drinkable, this is for you.

Something sparkling? 

Summer celebrations aren't the same without bubbles. Here are two of our favourites sparkling numbers.

#10 Palmer & Co Brut Rosé Reserve - France

Lovely salmon-pink colour with fresh wild strawberry and blackcurrant flavours and a long rich finish. Aged for 3 years on lees. A serious premium rosé fizz.

#3 Vaporetto Prosecco - Italy

Taking their name from the 'Little Steamer' boats that used to run along the canals of Venice, Vaporetto have their roots firmly planted in the north of Italy. This fantastic Prosecco gives a lot of Champagnes a run for their money.

A little drop of something special

A little more expensive and a little more refined. For when a treat is needed.

#22 Muscadet Sur Lie, Chateau des Templiers - France

Still one of the best matches with shellfish and fish salads. A real spritzy zing and subtle flavours.

# 25 Chablis, Domaine De Marronniers - France

Classic elegant mineral structure from a small family estate. Unoaked Chardonnay at its best.

#49 Sancerre Rosé, Andre Neveu Loire Valley, France

Pure Pinot Noir that has been aged for a short time in cask to add complexity to the palate. Light and bursting with red berry fruit with nuances of spice and liquorice. Best served slightly chilled, but not excessively so. It makes a great wine for lunchtime drinking.
