Summer Wines with Oaks and Corks
The year is coming to an end and that means more time soaking it in with your favourite wine chilled to perfection. Oaks and Corks gave us their list of wines that are fruity, fresh, fun and go great with all your canapes, sandwiches and cold cuts.
MOUNT HERMON MOSCATO
The unique Canelli grape in this Moscato displays aromatic and fresh flavours of green apple, peach and pineapple with fruity notes of lime and tangerine. This light and refreshing dessert wine with its straw yellow colour and sweet but tart finish will pair perfectly with spicy Asian dishes, a charcuterie plate with melon or creamy desserts.
Available at Kshs. 1,629
SUNKISSED NATURAL SWEET
A fantastic summer sipper, this natural sweet rose from the Douglas Green range makes you wish summer lasted a whole year. The cherry pink-hued wine displays notes of candied cherry and ripe raspberries with aromas of crushed strawberries and other red berries. Enjoy each sip paired perfectly with curried chicken salads, BBQ burgers and sticky ribs or take it on your next picnic.

BLUE NUN SPARKLING 24K GOLD EDITION
This pale yellow wine stands out even before you pour it. The genuine gold flakes float around in a sea of bubbles that are created using an old fermentation process that lends some flair to this German Riesling. Enjoy aromas of green apple skin, pear and peach paired perfectly with white meat and fish or drink it on its own as an aperitif.

FRANSCHHOEK CELLAR CLUB HOUSE ROSE
This salmon-hued wine is another summer favourite and is the result of a mix of three grape varieties. With aromas of red berries and cherries, this well-balanced wine displays notes of discreet spice, strawberries and Turkish delight. Pair it with smoked salmon, sushi, prawns, smoked chicken and cold meats as you bask in the summer sun.
