My summer wine

Posted by Yiannis 03/06/2014 0 Comment(s) Various, White Wine,

As for summer wines, from broken whites to sweet ambers, we prefer all shades of whites as they match the mood, the weather, and are served well with food. They usually have stronger acidities, contain almost no tannins which means they have no tartness, their aromatic fruity palette take lead, and their alcohol volume is lower than in red wines. Taking into account all these factors, the result is that white wines must be consumed at temperatures between 7 to 12 degrees which make them suitable for hot summer days. The lightness is what makes them ideal in accompanying summer dishes such as light vegetables, light pastas, meat, fish and seafood. Even more exorbitant dishes like grilled or smoked poultry meet their match in white barreled wines while desserts that tend to contain fresh fruit, white creams, or white chocolate are best served with white sweet wines.
