Forget Rosé: These Are the Wines You Need to Be Sipping

As we move into the final weeks of summer, it’s hard not to reach for the trusty rosé you’ve been drinking all season. Light, bright, and easy to drink, how can you not love the blush-colored beverage? However, there are plenty of other wine varietals to fill your glass up with, whether it’s a beach day or a BBQ night. Here, we tapped Cloudy Bay winemaker Steven Planthaber to walk us through the tasting notes of their own heralded New Zealand wines, as well as give tips on what to look for when choosing alternatives to rosé.

Sauvignon Blanc

"Cloudy Bay was among the first five wineries to be established in Marlborough, New Zealand’s finest wine region, and is often referred to as the “jewel of the Pacific,” helping to define the style of New Zealand’s wines. Most people know this main style to be Sauvignon Blanc, which is Cloudy Bay’s signature," says Planthaber. "This wine is known for its incredible finesse and freshness: think bright and citrusy with a crisp acidity. We also have our 'Te Koko' wine, which is a Sauvignon Blanc aged in French oak, that lends a more savory and complex taste to the zingy acidity of the grapes. Both pair wonderfully with seafood and are perfect for drinking during the summer."

Chardonnay

"Chardonnay is bright and refined, a lot more round and savory than a Sauvignon Blanc. The nose is immediately fresh and beguiling, with notes of candied lemon, citrus flowers and subtle hints of spice. The palate is round, with gentle citrus and stone fruit characters enfolded in layers of crème patissière and hazelnut," says Planthaber. For summer sipping, look for an unoaked Chardonnay, which lends more acidity to the fragrant texture of the wine.

Chilled Reds

People often think summer means solely white and rosé wines, but light reds (that can be chilled!) shouldn’t be left for solely winter months. "Pinot Noir has notes of velvety cherry and plum fruits. Given air, subtle rose notes come into play, and the earthy notes and supple tannin brings out a smooth acidity that makes this a very easy-drinking red wine," says Planthaber. "We also have our ‘Te Wahi’ Pinot Noir, which is similarly rich in fruity notes and has an earthy smoothness. Both pair wonderfully with grilled meats, and when served chilled add a completely new way to enjoy your summer BBQ."

Pinot Grigio

Pinot Grigio is another fantastic wine varietal for warm days. With primary flavors of lemon, pear, nectarine and green apple, Pinot Grigio has a refreshing minerality and acidic finish. The zesty, dry wine is best served super chilled, and is an ideal addition to lounging by the pool. Looking for a food pairing? Smoked salmon, grilled chicken, and summer vegetables all come to life when washed down with the acidic fruitiness of the wine.

White Blends

A white wine blend is the perfect place to turn if you're craving a twist on some of your favorite single grape varietals. A White Bordeaux combines Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon grapes, for a palate of citrus and passionfruit that tends to be less acidic than your typical Sauvignon Blanc. Other noteworthy blends combine Sauvignon Blanc, Viognier and Chenin Blanc for a glass of something crisp with citrus notes, or Grenache Blanc, Rousanne, and Bourbolenc for something a bit more rich.

Bubbles

Bubbly is something that makes its way into multiple occasions, year-round. While Prosseco is a light and crispy go-to (whether you choose to drink it solo or in an Aperol Spritz) chilled red bubbly, orfrizzante, should not be overlooked. Lambrusco, a sparkling red wine, is slightly sweeter than your typical room-temperature, tannic reds, but still upholds a crisp freshness that hits the perfect summer note. Another sparkling red is Brachetto, which has similar fruity notes of black raspberry and cherry, and adds the perfect fizz to after-dinner treats, like chocolate strawberries. For those looking for a new white varietal bubbly, try a sparkling Pinot Grigio thats citrus notes and sparkling finish are nothing short of refreshing.

Ciders

Cider is another great alternative to rosé, and wine in general. While many think of drinking a chilled cider in the fall months, the crisp flavors taste just as fresh in warmer weather. Choose ones that include other flavors than just apple, like lemon and pineapple. There are also some ciders that are fermented just like other bubbly beverages, giving an effervescent quality to its fruity notes.
