The beautiful colour was enough to sell me on this wine. But when I tasted it I was further sold on the lovely, fresh strawberry and citrus flavours. This rosé is no white zin – it is totally dry and even has a spiced character. It’s a great pair with duck, turkey, salads, or spice-rubbed lobster tails. And glasses of Tavel add a perfect touch of class to the table.
Dare to impress at your next BBQ with this stunner from Argentina. If steaks are on the menu, you can’t miss with this spicy, peppery, smoky, leathery wine bursting with black cherry and cassis fruit. Sauté some mushrooms in butter, crack plenty of black pepper on the beef and you’ll be in heaven. The tannins are smooth enough that you could enjoy this one on its own while you stand on the patio flipping the steaks on the grill.
This refreshing wine is waiting to refresh your summer palate. Peaches, apricots, green apple, pink grapefruit, lime and a hint of white flowers will greet and entice your palate. It’s got a perfect balance of sweet fruit flavours and mouth-watering acidity that shows when Riesling is expressed at its best. Try it with light summer fare: salads, fish, local spot prawns. Try mixing some grapefruit or citrus dressing into your recipe to bring out those notes in the wine.
It’s amber with a copper hue and has delicious aromas of orange, almond paste, nuts, spice and burnt toffee. On the palate it is medium dry, and fortified to 20% alcohol.
The big flavour and delightful sweet, but not cloying, character of this wine land it on the ‘best value’ wine lists year after year. Remember: alcoholic beverages at 20% hit your blood stream the quickest, making this the perfect drink after a tough day. It’s worth getting to know as an after work sipper or after dinner with nuts and a cheese plate.
