Staying with rosé, the Txakoli di Rubentis
Rosado (pronounced Cha-co-li) from
Getaria in northern Spain, is Ellis Wharton
Wines' worst-kept secret.
Its staff can't help but recommend it
when people come into the shop and
ask for an alternative to familiar rosés.
With a natural spritz, the strawberry and
citrus avours make this a great afternoon
drink in the sun or to add a touch of
elegance to something as simple as fish
and chips. And at only 10.5% ABV, this
wine is pleasingly light.
Most of us are guilty of plumping for
the same wines and it can sometimes be
hard to know what else to try, especially
if you're looking to serve it with food.
Don't worry; here's the answer...
Whitehaven Riesling from the

Another drink that is now receiving
a much-deserved renaissance is sherry.
While we all probably have memories
of Gran sipping on a sweet cream sherry
at Christmas, there is so much more
to discover. A great starting point is the
Manzanilla Pasada - Pastrana single
vineyard sherry. It is dry, light and crisp
but ith lots of avours of almonds,
orange, apples plus a salty tang.
You serve this well chilled and is
absolutely perfect with all things tapas,
from olives and nuts to spicy potatoes
and Manchego cheese to chorizo.
Lastly, how can we talk about drinks
for the summer without mentioning
a good old gin and tonic, and what
better example is there than one that
combines the classic gin avours ith
an intriguing Cornish twist?
The Wrecking Coast Gin from Tintagel
in North Cornwall is made with Cornish
clotted cream to add a gentle sweetness
to the spirit. Serve it with a slice of
strawberry and tonic for a gorgeously
