The Best White Wines to Try This Summer

Chardonnay

You may feel a little “overwhelmed” with Chardonnay in the warm seasons, but it is a classic white wine and for sure the most popular among white wine lovers.

However, diving into the world of wine is a never-ending story, so you might be surprised by some different, new tastes that you are used to. Give it a try!

Famous for its golden-yellow colour, Chardonnay has plenty of different styles, ranging from light, and sparkling to rich and creamy, ageing in oak barrels.

Basic notes of Chardonnay include yellow apple, pineapple and starfruit, complemented with tasty vanilla and butter.

If you are looking for a creamy texture with tropical fruit flavours, craftily blended with notes of bitter almonds and dried fruits El Enemigo Chardonnay 2019 is your perfect match. 

Medium-body, dry and softly acidic, this wine combines perfectly with vegetables and salads, rich fish, or herby roast chicken.

Wine lovers who enjoy bold creamy wines with notes of butter, vanilla, pear and pineapple should try Bogle Chardonnay 2020.

Coming from the French Bordeaux, Sauvignon Blanc means “Wild White” and it is one of the most popular grapes grown worldwide.

The light and elegant structure, with refreshing acidity balanced with topical fruits and aromatic grass, make this wine the perfect choice for a summer white.

The style varies from fresh, crisp citrus flavours to creamy and rich, ageing in oak barrels.

New Zealand is among the greatest Sauvignon Blanc producers in the world, being the flagship variety of the country.
