Spring Six pack

David Prescott from Wine and More Albany 2

Spring is here, time to start stocking up the wine cupboard for the start of daylight saving, And this six pack is a good way to start.

Vin Alto Clevedon Rosé
An off-dry style, predominantly from Merlot, this rosé has sweet strawberry and cream aromas and a vibrant, juicy summer fruit palate. Enjoy lightly chilled on its own or with Asian and Mediterranean dishes.
West Brook Riesling
With fine lime and an ethereal presence. A perfumed, graces with heady tropical fruits and

d'Arenberg Adelaide Hills The Lucky Lizard Chardonnay
Citrus, green apple and sea spray notes are offered up courtesy of the cool climate Adelaide Hills and its accompanying geologies. Roasted nuts and a hint of brioche are a subtle nod to the very selective and restrained use of premium quality French oak barrels. This host of flavours is backed by a chiselled, dart like acidity that initially maintains a tight grip on the palate, gently ceding with air and warmth to allow the wines natural richness to emerge. Restrained yet layered with flavour and texture. Classic Chardonnay.

REDS:
Contrade Primitivo
Dark ruby red with violet reflections with aromas of wild berries, cocoa and nutmeg with slightly vanilla finish from spending 3 months in oak.
Vega del Rayo Tempranillo Rioja
A modern, vibrant, unoaked Tempranillo. Oozing with red fruits, fresh cherries and plums with hints of spicy complexity. Soft and easy to drink with approachable ripe fruit yet well-structured. A great entry level Rioja.
Odyssey Marlborough Pinot Noir 2015 (Certified organic)
It’s elegant yet weighty with lovely fruit ripeness which manifests in intense flavour and a sweet impression. The finish is long and well structured this wine is ageing wonderfully. 4****
