Wine six pack - Stock up the cupboard

David Prescott from Wine and More Albany 2

I had a great reponse to the last weekly six pack, apologies to those who missed out on getting the West Brook Riesling in their packs.
Here is my selection for this week.
Quartz Reef Central Otago Biodynamic Methode Traditionnelle N.V

You don't need a special occasion to open a bottle of bubbly. Colour is light yellow. Bouquet has fruit, lime and cream. Palate is rich, textural and refreshing. try with fish and chips on the beach

Kakapo Marlborough Pinot Gris 2016

A lifted honeyed nose and a fine crisp acidity. This is a luscious, broad and elegant wine with a strong mineral backbone, fine balance and a long textured finish. An exotic texture with lush fruit flavours made in a dry style.

Food Match: Seared scallops, seafood dishes or Thai food

Kahurangi Nelson Sauvignon Blanc 2017

Ripe fruit elements of passionfruit, mango and gooseberry flavours with a good length and fresh zesty lime finish.

Serving Suggestions - A delicious, crisp, refreshing wine served chilled with seafood, seasonal asparagus or freshly shucked oysters.

A Growers Touch Hanwood Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

This old vine Cabernet Sauvignon is a dark, deep lilac with magenta hues. It has aromas of lush briary blackberry and blackcurrant, partnered with plum, clove and vanilla. On the palate, classically varietal with blackberry and blood plum. Food Pairing: Enjoy this wine with braised beef short ribs, garlic chicken wings, Porcini risotto & blue cheese.

A Growers Touch Hanwood Shiraz 2017

Moderately inky Shiraz with bright, fresh, dark berry, plum and subtle spice flavours. A high energy red, with refreshing acidity and subtle tannins. Deliciously drinkable now, but no rush" Bob Campbell, Master of Wine, The Real Review, Aug 2018

Infame Chile Reserve Carménère 2016

Medium body, fresh, fruity, tannins present, very moorish with a long lenghty aftertaste

Six Pack 1 of each $118.00 = $20.00pb Save $26.00
