A Moment For Chilled Reds
As the summer season kicks into full swing, we often find ourselves reaching for a refreshing beverage to cool us down. While icy beers and crisp white wines might typically be the go-to choices, this summer, we’re suggesting something a little different – chilled red wines. Yes, you read that right. Chilled red wines!
Many people are under the misconception that red wines should always be served at room temperature. However, this isn’t always the case. Certain types of red wines actually benefit from a bit of chilling, as it can help to enhance their natural aromas and flavours. In particular, light-bodied reds with high acidity and moderate tannins can be absolutely delightful when served slightly below room temperature.
So, let’s swing the spotlight onto two of our favourites for this season – See Saw Marge and See Saw Invergo Gamay. Trust us when we say that these wines are a game-changer for those warm summer nights.
See Saw Marge is a beautiful blend that’s as versatile as it is delicious. With a gorgeous ruby hue and a lively acidity, it’s a wine that’s perfectly suited for chilling. Once you’ve popped it in the fridge for a bit, you’ll find that its fruity characteristics really start to shine, offering a delightful balance of tartness and sweetness.
On the other hand, See Saw Invergo Gamay is a wonderfully light, fruity wine that’s just begging to be enjoyed on a sunny afternoon. With a vibrant, juicy palate and a subtle hint of spice, it’s a wine that’s sure to impress even the most discerning of wine connoisseurs. And once it’s been lightly chilled, its refreshing qualities are only further enhanced.
As we head into the height of summer, we believe it’s the perfect time to step outside of the box and try something new. So, why not give chilled red wines a chance? They just might become your new favourite summer sipper. Explore our full wine range online.
