Cool, refreshing, fruity and thirst-quenching – these are just some characteristics wine enthusiasts look for in summer wines. Enjoying wine during the summertime can be tricky, especially if you are looking for a drink that not only matches your meal but is also not too overpowering.
Below is a summer wine guide we came up with that will help you find the perfect balance to your seafood and summer barbecue while still giving you a refreshing wine experience.
Fruity Summer Wines in Margaret River
The Berry Farm is home to one of the best wineries in Margaret River that produces fruity and refreshing summer wines.
We have our own range of fortified wines made from luscious seasonal fruit. The summery Club House Series Apple Vanilla is made from Granny Smith apples that work well with pork dishes. It is a light style port that is best served chilled. The new Summer Berry Fortified Wine will shortly replace the Raspberry Fortified Wine as Number 2 in our Club House Series. The new summer berry wine is made from blueberries, boysenberries, strawberries and mulberries, and is also best served chilled during the warmer months.
In addition to the fortified wines, the berry farm has a range of dessert wines that are great for the summer months. The range consists of fig dessert wine (which is currently sold out but will soon be back in the lineup as soon as the figs are picked), strawberry, and plum. All our dessert wines are served chilled and may be consumed after dinner with dessert or a cheese board, or may be enjoyed with lighter summer style spicy meals.
Our new sweet quince cider will be bottled shortly to complement the dry pear cider, apple cider, pear and boysenberry, and pear and strawberry sparkling wines we have on offer. The quince cider is made from our berry farm-grown quince and will certainly satisfy those sweeter palettes.
We also have our own Sauvignon Blanc Semillon that has a smooth and fruity blend, best served with summer dishes like chicken and seafood. Our sparkling wines that give sweet and fruity notes offer refreshing endings to hearty summer meals.
