Welcome to Spring & some delicious bottles to enjoy in the longer days of sunshine!
La Jara Rose Frizzante (Italy)
An organic lightly sparkling rosé wine from north-east Italy, made with organic Glera (the same grape as Prosecco) & Raboso grapes. The nose is delicate strawberries & raspberries. The palate is fresh & tart full of gooseberry & redcurrant notes. Try pairing this wine with risotto or pasta, or simply having it as an aperitif in the garden.
Chateau de la Selve Le Ballon Rose (France)
This is an organic dry Rose made from 50% Grenache & 50% Cinsault. The palate shows ripe red fruit & a nice round texture upheld by lively acidity. A quintessential sunshine rose that would pair perfectly with charcuterie, salads & tapas.
Meinklang Gruner Veltliner (Austria)
A delicious complex Grüner Veltliner with a classic peppery character & flavours of apple, grapefruit & honey at the finish. This white can more than hold it’s own with well-seasoned stronger flavoured foods, like spicy sausages & richer pastas as it has a lovely weight to the palate. Biodynamic.
Picpoul de Pinet Malassagne (France)
A lovely vibrant white wine alive with fresh citrus, green apple & lemongrass notes. Tangy, juicy palate with a hint of mandarin; finishes crisp & dry with a hint of sea spray. Ideal as an aperitif or with shellfish.
Nostros Riesling (Chile)
From the Bio Bio Valley, this is an excellent representation of the diversity of this grape. Dry, light, refreshing with some minerality. A beautiful pale green colour, intense lime & lemon aromas with a hint of flora, refreshing & zesty on the palate. Drink this with any food that you think would go well with a squeeze of fresh citrus juice.
Amphorvm Sauvignon Blanc/Verdejo (Spain)
A very popular wine here at Cork & Cask! On the nose fresh & zesty aroma with notes of pear, apricot, citrus fruits & grapefruit. A great alternative for a Sauvignon Blanc drinker to branch out a little & try some other grapes in the blend. The Verdejo adds in some herbaceous notes, melon & grapefruit to this crowd pleaser. Organic & only 11.5%.
