The 5 best-selling German white wine in summer

 TAGS:

Right now you fancy a chilled white wine, right? And that is because when it?s that hot, nothing is better to refresh ourselves than a good wine, to 7-9 º C, which helps us getting away from the heat. But what wine do we choose? The German white wines are the UK?s favorites: light, fresh, with great acidity, they can be combined with any light food, but are just as good when drunk alone, on a terrace next to the sea.

Blue Nun, Black Tower … these are some of the British?s summer favorites wine brands. But do you want to know what German white wines Uvinum?s user fancy the most? Here they are:

3 wines to taste after the end of the world

 TAGS:It was said that everything would be over in 21st December. Doomsday theories announced the end of the world. I was so skeptical to such matters, and I’m always in for a good party, so I’m thinking that the best way to celebrate the not-such-end would be organizing a party or a dinner on the occasion of every new month of Planet Earth.

The main thing regarding this dinner will be choosing three wines which raise it to the level of the dinner of the millennium, which is almost at the level of the Last Supper. And so you notice that you still do not know me, rather than repeat, play it safe, dip into my top 10 wines or call my local dealer, I have decided to try 3 new wines that I have already booked online. What do you think about it?

The first is a white wine. After a lot of thinking, because I had plenty of perfect candidates to accompany homemade starters in which the main ingredient is going to be seafood, I have decided that the lucky wine to inaugurate such a special dinner will be Nautilus Sauvignon Blanc 2011.

This specimen comes from the Marlborough region of New Zealand and among this antipodes stuff and the cute spiral shell that decorates the front of the bottle, I thought it was best for this particular event. It also has to be mention, and this is the most prosaic part of it, that I have read very good reviews supporting its flavour, aroma and how great it is to pair with seafood.

The evening will continue with a red wine. I still do not know what kind of dish it will accompany but what I already have in mind where will come from the lucky wine which will be uncorked for this second part of the meal: Numanthia Termes. The wine I will share with my guests can be a Termanthia 2003 or a Numanthia 2006. Both great!

And finally and to pair the delicious desserts that I will bring to the table, I am very sure about my decision: Vi de Glass Riesling 375ml 2010. This Penedés wine comes from Gramona and I have put my expectations in this deli Riesling and Muscat blend presented with a syrupy taste in the exact point enough for the palate to ask you to repeat. And hopefully we will have many days left to do so!
