Here are seven light and fresh wine suggestions for spring 2024

Priced from £11.50 to £29.99

Light Red – A bright option to drink without food, lower ABV.
Chilled Red – Cold (but not ice cold) makes this a beautiful refresher. Pair with grilled meats.
*New* Spring Rosé – Lighter styles for this time of year. Pair with Niçoise salad.
Unoaked – A side step from buttery rich styles. Pair with oysters and sushi.
Riesling – Lower levels of alcohol and crisp citrus palate. Pair with Asian salads.
Crémant – Made using the same methods of Champagne but a fraction of the price.
Something new! – A new season calls for a new wine! Look at South Africa for a barrel-fermented Chenin blanc. Perfect with asparagus.
