Enjoy a Blockbuster summer with affordable reds
Sometimes only red wines will do, even in the heat of summer. It’s not a sin to chill a light, fruity red for about 20 minutes in the ice cooler. The important thing is to enjoy every sip while you savour every moment of a perfect summer.
Chilled red wines can be soothing, relaxing and juicy in their redness and they happen to go well with many traditional summer foods. The important thing is to look for red wines that are not to high in alcohol. Secondly, look for wines that are inexpensive to fit the informality of the silly season. The wines should also taste proudly red with tannins, red-fruit fleshiness and verve, not like chilled whites that happened to be red.
A good example of a summer red is the Leopard’s Leap Merlot. It’s medium-bodied and fruity and on the nose you will find mushroom aromas followed by predominant dark fruit flavours. This Merlot is rich, with notes of chocolate and a cedar wood finish on the palate.
If you don’t get the opportunity to visit the brand new tasting room of Leopard’s Leap this summer, you can always grab a case of 6 at Ultra Liquors for only R219. Buy the case and get a 1.5 litre Leopard’s Leap wine absolutely FREE!
