Cruising along in the car on a cheeky weekend break in Cornwall we thought we had ‘discovered’ a new summer anthem; the kind that screams carefree days, water fights and beach bonfires. Then Facebook, Spotify and the radio kindly pointed out that I’m not, in fact an undercover A&R genius, and in fact, everyone had ‘discovered’ it.
There’s a certain type of summer vibe that manages to balance anthem without being cheesy singalong, summer without being naff europop and have an infectiousness that means that everyone jigs along…
These wines are all summer anthems in their own way…
In case you were wondering it was This Girl by the Kungs vs Cookin’ on 3 burners
Honourable mention – La Gitana
We’ve been on a sherry-fest recently (and by recently I’m talking for the last 10+ years) and have been introducing people to the joys of sherry. One of life’s little pleasures is a chilled glass of Manzanilla in the afternoon/early evening. Hidalgo’s La Gitana is currently on offer in Waitrose down to £8 (for a full bottle) so worth stocking up on.
