Textured whites for long summer nights
We’ve still got some long summer evenings ahead of us and what better way to spend them than outside, with a cool glass of something delicious. But moving on from those quick and zippy aperitif styles, we’ve selected three of our favourite textured whites to be lingered over and pondered as the shadows grow longer.
Classic Chenin from the Loire
Pierre Bise Savennieres Clos de Coulaine Claude Papin 2013
Evolving brilliantly, this will be a star performer with cheese. Match it with a tangy goat’s cheese or an aged Comte.
£122.52 DPD per case of 12 – RRP £17.99
Textured Pinot Grigio from Alto Adige
Lageder Porer Pinot Grigio 2014
Pinot Grigio but not as many people know it. Biodynamic excellence from the hands of Alois Lageder, in this exciting region of Italy.
£65.82 DPD per case of six – RRP £19.99
Full-bodied Vermentino from a Tuscan legend
Gaja Toscana Vistamare 2015
60% Vermentino and 40% Viognier, this elegant and generous wine made by Gaia Gaja is fantastic paired with robust fish dishes or Poulet de Bresse.
