The heat wave is upon us, BBQs are the chosen cooking method and eating outside is the norm. While we are all enjoying this summer stretch, we need wines that suit the occasion. My next mixed case has been curated with that in mind, a delicious Summer Ready case that both offers cool, crisp whites and BBQ friendly, flavourful reds.
Descriptions are in the details below, but I'll offer a bit of advice for whatever wines you are enjoying right now. Given how warm it is outside, throw your reds in the fridge for 20 minutes before you drink them. That slight cooling of the wine will make it more enjoyable in warm weather and bring it closer to what would traditionally be considered 'cellar temperature'. I would typically recommend doing the opposite for your whites; pull them out of the fridge about 20 minutes before you drink them as this will allow the flavours to really shine and be fully appreciated. Another fun comparison, when you have a few people sharing is to try both approaches and compare the same wine at slightly different temperatures. This will allow you to decide for yourself what you like best!
