SUMMER WINE LIBATIONS | THE BOTTLES TO POP RIGHT NOW
It’s hard to beat a cold, crisp glass of wine on a warm day, especially if it’s a rosé – basic or not, we stand by the fact that the pink stuff just tastes so good in the summer sun. From pink pet nat to vegan vino, these are the summer wines we’re popping and pouring this season.
Della Vite Rosé Prosecco
The Delevingne sisters’ prosecco brand, Della Vite, has released a third to their range, the D.O.C. Rosé Millesimato. Sustainably sourced and fully vegan with a creamy texture and fruity notes, this pink fizz is only one month out the tank and is already raking up the awards.
Pasqua Hey French
This Italian Soave from historic winery Pasqua is a blend of four of their best vintages from the past decade. It’s fresh, fragrant and floral, with a hint of minerality from the vineyard’s volcanic soil. With tasting notes of chamomile, hazelnut, citrus, tropical fruit, this is a brilliant choice to accompany shellfish and/ or a plate of pasta.
Co-founded by model Constance Jablonski and Maggie Frerejean-Taittinger, French Bloom gives you everything you want from a summer wine, bar the booze. Le Rosé is 0% alcohol (they also do a Le Blanc) and is full of cherry, peach and wild berry flavours.
Ultimate Provence Rosé
Name a better summer drink than a crisp, light Provence rose – we’ll wait. This one not only tastes good but it’s got a bit of a funky bottle too and it comes in magnums so great for the girls and the gram. The kinda rose we can quaff all summer long, especially when the sun is out.
If you’re after some vino to serve at a summer dinner party, then Savor has you covered. The vegan wine brand has produced three bottles – red, white and rose from Italy, Spain and France – that have been designed to pair with recipes from the region they come from, so you can cook up a feast knowing you’ll have the perfect booze to go with it.
Renegade ‘Crystal’ Nat Fizz
Produced at Renegade Urban Winery in the heart of Bethnal Green, this pet nat is bursting with all the pink and red fruit notes, like raspberry, rhubarb and strawberry, you could want from a wine and as it’s not been disgorged, it’s got a nice summer haze on it as well.
