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.
The summer is still flourishing so here are a couple of sundowners to enjoy.
Australian Sparkling Wine
Jansz Premium Cuvee
Style: If you enjoy bubbles and are looking for a flavoursome alternative to the usual offerings, this sparkling wine from cool climate Tasmania may hit the spot. Reflecting methods used in Champagne, this wine will give fresh fruit flavours with a hint of biscuit/bready flavours acquired from the complex process of leaving the wine in contact with yeast. Enjoy on its own or try with smoked salmon blinis.
Available from Wine Direct (www.winedirect.co.uk) - £18.95
Muscat de Beaumes de Venice
Style: Serve well chilled on a hot day and this wine will not disappoint. The sweetness is balanced with acidity and alcohol to give a pre-dinner pick me up. The fresh peach and grape flavours of the Muscat grape are fortified with a little extra alcohol to provide a discreet kick. This wine can also be served with cheeses.
Available from Waitrose - £7.99
