WINE AND SPIRIT RECOMMENDATIONS
At Wine Wise, we understand that choosing a wine or spirit is not an exact science. So many factors come into it - how well you are feeling, where you are, who you are with, even the mood you are in can make a difference.
Listed below are some of the wines and spirits we have been enjoying. Please note that these recommendations are independent and under no influence/incentive from suppliers.
AUGUST - Guilty Pleasures
Many people think that sweet wines are not for them. If that is you, don't be so sure!... Here are two simple sweet wines that are often overlooked in favour of dry wine styles. Try them on a hot summers day as an early evening pick me up or lunchtime wine. You may well be pleasantly surprised!
Muscat de Beaumes de Venise
This is a fortified wine which allows the simple sweet grape (yes grape) flavours of the muscat grape to shine through together with a slight alcoholic kick which balances the sugar content. A sweet delight at the end of a busy day. Try with some strawberries and enjoy the summer of sport.
Waitrose - £7.99
Asti Spumante DOCg
A sweet sparkling wine with a low alcohol content. No longer a 70's throwback, the Asti region produces premium sparkling wine with an added status of DOCg where wines have to pass a tasting panel to ensure quality and style. Perfect on its own, with a summer fruit salad with some marscarpone cheese.
Marks and Spencer - £7.00
