Dive into spring with wines that ooze sunshine and energy
It is the season that symbolises vitality and new beginnings. The days are becoming longer, nights shorter and blossoms and buds are making their appearance everywhere along with the warmer weather – reminding us that nature has awoken from its winter slumber and so should we!
So why not shake off the winter rust with wines that will get you in the mood for al fresco living. Think light, refreshing and full of flavour. Here are 3 absolute must-have suggestions for your wine fridge that shout springtime exuberance and fun:
Boschendal 1685 Chardonnay Pinot Noir
Attractive deep gold brushed with copper glints. Complex and enticing whiffs of creamy citrus, starking red apples, baked pears and ripe strawberries yield to a sumptuous entry and broad citrus and tropical fruit flavours brushed with a suggestion of spice. A full bodied blend with interesting complexity, length and structure.
Bellingham Berry Bush Rosé
Now here is a dry Rosé that offers pure drinking pleasure. With its vivacious pink hue and inticing aromas of candied apple, Turkish delight and rose water, it makes for perfect pre-summer sipping. Delicious with light meals such as sushi, smoked salmon or chicken salads, and cream cheese.
Another stunner from the Brampton stable, this Sauvignon Blanc's bright fruit and balanced acidity makes it accesible and supremely refreshing. Rich fruit salad, ripe fig and apple flavours leap out of the glass, followed by moreish guava and passion fruit. A lively and immensely satisfying wine.
So pack those picnic baskets and explore the outdoors in all its warm splendour. Now is the time to revive body and soul to take on the rest of the busy year ahead with a zest for life. These wines are on our summer shopping list certainly fit this brief, so bring on those carefree sunny days!
