Six wines that Charlie Stein absolutely loves to drink in the sunshine with good friends - including a rosé, because no spring wine selection would be complete without it, three bottles of white that work a treat with seafood and a very quaffable light pinot noir from Bulgaria, that he recommends pouring slightly chilled.
What the case includes:
LE TUFFEAU ROSE, FRANCE
The perfect pink for easy drinking, with crunchy red currant fruit. Delicious with an old school prawn cocktail.
DOMAINE HORGELUS SAUVIGNON BLANC/GROS MANSENG FRANCE
A wine that is better than the sum of its parts: Sauvignon on its own at this level can be one-dimensional in flavour but when you add the more exotic Gros Manseng you get a partnership worth investing in. Herbaceous, but also a punch of tropical fruit depth.
MUSCADET SEVRE-ET-MAINE SUR LIE COTES GRANDLIEU, DOMAINE HERBAUGES, FRANCE
If you like your wine fresh, light, and crisp. Look no further. Muscadet is an electric shock of a wine, buzzing with fresh acidity and refreshing saline citrus fruit, when teamed with those gorgeous briny, salty, metallic fruits of the sea then you get the perfect combo.
NAI E SEÑORA, ALBARINO
A perfect match with seafood, this deliciously refreshing white has flavours of apple, peach and tropical fruit.
SOLI PINOT NOIR, THRACIAN VALLEY, BULGARIA
This wine is light, fresh, fragrant with redcurrant and wild strawberry fruit and it’s dangerously easy to drink. Perfect for a Thursday evening when you are just in the mood for a glass of something delicious.
LE PARADOU GRENACHE, CHÂTEAU PESQUIÉ, FRANCE
With aromatic charms and crunchy fruit flavours this red is a delicate and youthful wine, ideal for spring.
