Best of the summer wine

What to quaff when you scoff! Pop a cork – or should that be unscrew the lid – on the best summer wines, according to a top Dorset wine merchant

Caroline Morrish and Mark Banham of Morrish & Banham in Bridport, set up their business in 2015 to provide ‘nice wine for nice people, people who like good wine and a good time’ (that’s you and me, isn’t it?). Here’s what these wine experts suggest we should be drinking this summer.

Glug in the garden

From ‘Neptune’s Vineyard’, the Nantais district of the Loire in France, this Muscadet Sur Lie, Domaine Pemions is a modern take on a classic wine. Fresh, fruity and refreshing, it’s calling out to be glugged in the garden or while you’re eating mussels on the beach. £11.99

Sip with summer pud

Not a usual suspect but super delicious, Funkstille Zweigelt is an indigenous variety of Austrian wine with luscious cherry, plum and forest fruit flavours, that slips down oh so very easily. £11.99

Perfect with risotto

This Sherwood Estate Stoney Range is a Sauvignon Blanc from Waipara in New Zealand not the forest in Nottingham and has a refined, elegant almost celery leaf character. You don’t have to wait for the risotto: sip as an aperitif. £12.99

Grill ‘n’ chill

Raspberry and cherry fruits combined with silky smooth tannins make this soft succulent Santaurio Malbec from Mendoza in Argentina, the perfect match for grilled meats. Lamb lollipops, anyone? £9.99

Spice girls

From the highest vineyard in the world in the far north of Argentina, quaff a glass or two of Amalaya, a zesty blend of spicy Torrontes and zesty Riesling, whilst you tuck into a Thai green curry or lime and chilli prawns from the barbie. £12.99

Any time, any place

Pop a cork to celebrate Friday (or any other day of the week) with Furleigh fizz – the Furleigh Estate Sparkling Rosé and the Classic Cuvée – both produced near Bridport in Dorset. The rosé (only a few bottles left this year) has a wonderful pale pink colour and all the flavours of super summer berries; the cuvée is a pale lemon straw colour with citrusy notes. £32.99
