When you are under the hot sun you want something refreshing and light, so the most important thing about the wine you choose is to have low alcohol. The reason?? Alcohol usually warms you up and this is something you do not want when it has 40 degrees. Another key criterion is freshness. Prefer non-oaked wines that have all the freshness of the fruit and no heavy aromas of tobacco and spices that will cloy you. Body plays an important part, on the beach (for wine but not only)! Wines with medium to light body are clearly preferable to rich and oily wines, which, on one hand, they need food to go to and, on the other hand, they are a bit heavy for the occasion. Finally, of course, is the price. A bottle is surely not enough and since the groups have a tendency to grow bigger, you want something economic so you can get a second and even a third bottle ...
These are our 5 choices based on the beach you are going to go:
Secret beaches, with crystal clear waters, sharp rocks that are burning from the summer sun and a distinctive smell of the sea . A cicada on the pine under which you put your towel almost whispers in your ear “Robola Robola”. Mineral notes, salty, slightly botanical and only 12% alcohol are contained in the Robola of Panos Sarris.
Chic sun beds, large white umbrellas, relaxed, lounge music and designer swimwear sound ultra chic & fine so the ultimate choice is the Fine Rose of Anatolikos Vineyards. Pale, salmon color in the Provence standards, in a nice and minimal bottle, with distinctive aromas of flowers and fruits and only 12.5% alcohol.
Rackets, laughter, cheerful voices and joy from morning to sunset. The gang is big so you want something affordable, youthful, fresh, that everyone likes. Gavrias from the Estate Constantin Gofas with 12.5% alcohol will keep the party going until midnight!
Sunset, quiet, you and your lover on an idyllic beach, living your love. You definitely want something bubbly accompanied with summer fruits. Do not wander any more ... Debina from Glinavos Estate, with delicate bubbles and aromas of juicy fruits and white flowers, is what you need and something more to seduce her/ him!
Turquoise waters, coconut trees and golden sand form the ideal scenery for a hammock or an Aiora (hammock) white of Moschopolis Winery. The second one will definitely delight you with its tropical fruit aromas that will take you instantly to the Caribbean with only 12.5% alcohol.
