Best Wines to Drink This Spring
Spring has officially sprung, which means it time to organise your cellar and find the perfect wine to sip during the season ahead. To get you wine-ready, we’ve put together a list of our top picks of the best spring wines, along with some of our favourite pairings. Let’s get sipping!
Spring is the season that brings a pop of colour to ranunculus and sunflowers and the dawn of another new season, summer. What better drink mixes well with the month of change than rosé? Although often thought to be a summer drink, rosé is a versatile wine suitable all year-round. If you’re looking for a springtime wine that you can drink throughout every season, look no further than a bright, fresh tasting rosé. Rosé features beautiful shades of blush and pink tinted from natural variations in its red wine base. Although often subtle, with colours that match the season’s change and a flavour to keep the thirst quenching, rosé is the perfect accompaniment for all your spring-time meals, snacks and activities.
If you’re looking to shake things up with your everyday rosé and are in the mood for some cocktails, then we suggest you try this Spring Rosé Cocktail recipe! Mix to perfection and sip alongside salmon blini, cooked tiger prawns or a refreshing grapefruit dish. Make sure you keep track of your favourite picks this season with our Rosé cellartags.
Chardonnay is the perfect white wine for nearly all occasions. With a fruity aroma, it is no surprise that many wine lovers believe chardonnay is appropriate for the warmer spring weather, and the ideal choice for your spring activities. When it comes to spring dining, chardonnay pairs well with fish and seafood. We recommend a meaty fish like cod served with roasted spring vegetables.
Why not try a bottle of chardonnay by Sequence of Events. Crafted from organic grapes, this chardonnay offers refreshing notes of white stone fruit and green apple flavours. Love it? Keep track of this beautiful bottle with our Gold cellartags.
You don’t need to give up the taste of your favourite red when the weather starts to warm up. On the warmer spring days, there’s nothing like a refreshing glass of Pinot Noir – a classic elegant red. We suggest a light, bright Pinot, brimming with flirtatious fruits and aromas that evoke the tastebuds.
Not sure what to look for? We recommend the Cherry Bomb Pinot Noir by Young & Co. With a smooth mouthfeel and a palate of raspberry and cherry, this is a perfect choice for spring and early summer. Keep pairing simple with a bowl of fresh strawberries as a light afternoon snack. Keep track of your favourite spring Pinot Noir with our Burgundy cellartags.
