The Best Wines that Pair Well with your Favourite Steak in the Summer

When summer arrives, there will be lots of pool parties and cookouts. The nice warm weather is the best time to enjoy the outdoors through grills and barbecues.  At night, spending time at Rib N Reef will give you the best time to chill out with your favourite steak and wine. But, if you are planning to have a get-together, you will need to keep food and drinks cold and tasting good while you enjoy the summer weather.

Understanding wine can be tricky. It is best with grilled steak and gourmet steak burgers. However, not all wines match well with the warmth. If you don’t want to feel weighed down, avoid rich, dense wine. A light, fresh wine which can be served cold can be energising. Below are some of the best summer wines to compliment your next steak or barbecue:

Pinot Noir

This wine provides a refreshing, light taste with every sip. Also, it is good when chilled or ice cold and can pair well with your favourite steaks. Consider buying the champagne versions of Pinot Noir for a bubbly texture.

Dry Rose

Dry rose is probably the best wine for warm summer nights. It is a very light wine. Make sure you choose dry roses rather than blush version that tends to be a bit too sweet for the heat. Dry rose has enough sweetness and a refreshing flavour, especially when you pour it over ice.

Sparklers

Chill these wines well and they will reward you with tiny bubbles zipping to the top of your glass. They feature nice fruit flavours. Keep in mind that methode champenoise is your artisan choice.

Riesling

This versatile wine ranges from very dry to very sweet. This means that no matter what your taste preferences are, there is always a version of Riesling you can get. Also, this wine compliments any food you want to eat. Also, you can improve the wine’s flavour when you chill it without making it super cold.

Chardonnay

Although there are many styles around today, go for an unoaked Chard without the heavy buttery texture of malolactic fermentation to beat the beat. This wine pairs well with a crunchy salad or seafood.

Pinot Grigio

This wine has rich flavours which make it the most popular choice all year round.  Its light, fruity flavours which mimic everything you love about summer make it an excellent option for warm weather.
