Chilled reds

An ice-cold bottle of red wine? It may sound bonkers, but it works - for some grape varieties, at least. Here are 6 great reds to chill this summer

Domaine de la Croix de Chaintres Saumur Champigny 2014

This wine is full of fresh blackcurrant fruit flavours and has a subtle herby character.

Waitrose Mellow and Fruity Spanish Red

An oak-free, juicy, cherry-scented red. It makes a brilliant garden party red.

Recchia Bardolino 2014

This is a classic belnd of Italian red grapes. Juicy and fresh, it loves a dressing-drenched tomato salad.


Waitrose Beaujolais-Villages 2014

This wine is firm, fresh and loaded with raspberry flavours, and the word 'Villages' in the title means it's a step up in quality from standard Beaujolais.

The Edge Pinot Noir 2014

This doesn't need to spend long in the fridge, but drinking it very lightly brings out its bright side.

Cono Sur Reserva Especial Pinot Noir 2013/14

The combination of cherry and chocolate flavours in this wine is just gorgeous. A light chill gives it a refreshing edge.
