FC32021 FC32021 Rosé Duo des Plages, Vin de France 2016

The hot weather sent me reaching for a refreshing Rosé. I found an inexpensive solution in [this wine]. From the Pay d'Oc region which spans the south coast of France, this refreshing glugger was a beautiful delicate pink with equally delicate aromas of soft ripe red strawberries and peach. The ripe fruit carried on to the palate with refreshing mouth-watering acidity and a decent length. It was a particularly balmy evening and I was left wanting more. - Colin Burbidge

FC32021 FC32021 Rosé Duo des Plages, Vin de France 2016

It's on the red fruit side but with a gentle expressive lift making a truly dry fresh summer wine. Matching all manner of dishes including soused mackerel of even freshly shucked oysters, it is a lovely versatile rosé. - Stephen Barrett

PW6041 PW6041 Anselmo Mendes ‘Muros Antigos' Loureiro, Vinho Verde 2016

This modern example [of Vinho Verde] is made with the loureiro grape. I have been a fan of this grape and new style of Vinho Verde for many years but had to wait until I ventured into Portugal to have the opportunity to taste and sip. Not any more as loureiro and alvarinho are now firmly on the market elaborating outstanding light acid-based wines with sublime delicate fruit notes that are the perfect summer sip. Made by the celebrated Anselmo Mendes it could be your new summer wine. - Stephen Barrett

Anselmo Mendes has played a big part in transforming the reputation of the northern Portuguese Vinho Verde region thanks to pristine, aromatic, summery whites such as this, with its pear, floral and herbal notes, and invigorating citrus. - David Williams

Tim and Judy Neudorf were among the first to realise that New Zealand – specifically the Nelson region of the South Island – had the potential to make Burgundy-challenging chardonnay, this vintage offering a refined mix of smoky-flintiness and luminous fruit. - David Williams

AL13241 AL13241 Riesling, Trimbach 2014

While it’s bone-dry with a steely acidity, this classic Alsace riesling from one of the best addresses in the region is in no way austere, building layers of juicy peach and citrus into a sleek, delicious partner for a picnic lunch of pâtés, terrines and ham. - David Williams

FC30501 FC30501 Corse-Calvi Rouge Cuvee Fiume Seccu, Domaine Alzipratu 2015

As you might expect from its geography and history, Corsica’s wines are a kind of stylistic halfway house between southern France and Tuscany, a combination that makes for succulently evocative, sinewy, garrigue-scented reds such as this. - David Williams
