Pick Me Up! Special - - Days Out -

Wine fans tend to steer to­wards a cold glass of white or rosé dur­ing the warmer months, but wine buffs say you can chill red wine, too, as long as you pick the right bot­tle. As part of Lidl’s lat­est wine tour, they’ve in­cluded a red wine that’s per­fect to drink cold. ‘Not just any red qual­i­fies for chill­ing,’ ex­plains Lidl’s Master of Wine Richard Bamp­field. ‘What you want are light, fruity ex­am­ples with lower al­co­hol and softer tan­nins. Time in the fridge will in­crease the fresh­ness, so the wines taste juicier.’ Put the bot­tle in the fridge for 25 min­utes be­fore serv­ing, or plunge into an ice bucket for 8-10 min­utes. For faster re­sults, just throw in an ice cube or chill the glass be­fore pour­ing. Vin Art Vil­lányi Por­tugieser, £6.99, Lidl
