4 summer wines we're loving right now

The festive season has come and gone, lazy days lounging by the pool a mere memory and the daily hustle our current reality.

We know the transition from luxuriously laid-back to full-throttle can be a shock to the system, but, hey, that’s why we have wine!

Keep celebrating summer by keeping these beauties on ice:

Diemersfontein Rosé

Isn’t it just amazing what a little splash of colour can do to perk up your mood? Especially if it’s ice cold, drinkable and from the picturesque Diemersfontein Wine Estate!

With its lively candyfloss pink hue and smooth berry flavours, this wine is the perfect complement to a light summer lunch and - because we’re also all about the aesthetic - makes for particularly pretty pictures at sunset. It goes well with all sorts of food, but truly pops on the palate when paired with sushi.

Plus, it’s a steal at only R65 on the Diemersfontein website. Go fill up your basket right away!

Groot Constantia Brut Rosé

Sticking to the pink, but just adding the magic of bubbles, Groot Constantia’s Brut Rosé will turn even your bluest Monday into a bright celebration.

Made up of 90% Pinot Noir and 10% Chardonnay, this MCC is complex, fresh and just a little floral; as classy as it is fun!

While we 100% recommend savouring its taste without any distractions, it does also pair well with grilled fish dishes and salads.

Visit the Groot Constantia website for more details.

Nitida Wild Child

Fun, flirtatious and delightfully unpredictable, this Sauvignon Blanc from the Durbanville valley will have you twirling your skirts and giggling with joy in just a few sips.

Its creamy nectarine smoothness hugs riotous strawberries, while quirky gooseberries tease gentle lime. Discipline is restored with a nutty finale.

Go scoop it up for R140 on the Nitida website!

Plaisir de Merle Chardonnay

Add a bit of gravitas to your summer wine collection with Plaisir de Merle’s stately Chardonnay.

This pale straw-coloured wine with a slight green tint boasts aromas of toasted almonds and honey, with caramelised lemons and tropical sweetness balanced perfectly with subtle toasted wood flavours.

Visit the Plaisir de Merle website for details on where to buy this gorgeous wine.
