Top 10 wines in the UK press19th August, 2013 by Andy Young
David Williams recommends a “zesty summer white”, while Rose Murray Brown MW, picks out “an unusual Greek to spice up your picnic”.
Writing in The Scotsman, Brown recommends a number of wines that are ideal for picnics or “drinking outdoors in the heat.”
She tells her readers: “Whether it’s for a fishing trip, or a lazy day on the sand, the key is to choose fresh, vibrant, dry whites with high natural acidity to give you a lift. Forget anything heavily oaked, high in alcohol or low in acidity.
“To enjoy them at their best outdoors, chill them in advance in the fridge and pop them into “rapid ice” wine sleeves to take to the picnic. Alternatively wrap them in wet newspaper or find a running stream near your picnic – liquid cools faster in running water.”
