When it comes to picnics, wine is a must. But not just any wine will do. You need a wine that's light enough to drink in the heat, but still has enough body and flavour to pair well with your picnic spread. Here are four delicious wines that are perfect for your next picnic.
Rosé is the perfect summertime wine. It's light, refreshing, and pairs well with a variety of foods. Plus, it's pink, which makes it perfect for photos during a girly picnic in the park.
Grand Cru’s pick: Delatite Estate Shiraz Rose, $31.90 - A Rose heartier than most, with light berry allusions.
Pinot grigio is another great option for a picnic wine. It's light and crisp, with just a hint of sweetness. It's also very versatile and goes well with both fruit and cheese.
Grand Cru’s pick: Banks Road Pinot Grigio, $28.90 - Classic Australian Grigio. Citrus with pear, fresh and crisp on the palate.
Sauvignon Blanc is another refreshing white wine that's perfect for a picnic. It has citrusy notes that make it especially refreshing on a hot day. And like pinot grigio, it's also very versatile and pairs well with both fruit and cheese.
Grand Cru’s pick: Mitchell Harris Sauvignon Blanc Fume, $31.90 - Lovely ripe grapefruit and passionfruit tones. A wine with texture and length. Great food wine.
Riesling is a great option if you're looking for a sweeter wine. It pairs well with fruit or dessert, making it the perfect choice for a picnic lunch or dinner. And like all of the other wines on this list, it's also very refreshing on a hot day.
Grand Cru’s pick: Lethbridge Dr. Naderson Riesling, $41.90 - Typical of Henty fruit, this off dry Riesling possesses a sharp-edged flavour, invigorating the tastebuds.
