To help with your summer entertaining, we taken a selection of wines, and provided some information on what drinks you can pair different meals with as well as provided some background on their tasting notes.
Pepperjack Shiraz RRP $29.99
A classic Barossa Shiraz, this is Australia’s No. 1 red wine for six years running*. The palate is rich and plush with concentrated layers of blackberry, red fruits and oak so is the perfect accompaniment for steak, slow-roasted lamb shanks with star-anise, roast pheasant with thyme or braised beef with black bean sauce. Enjoy it upon release or let it age gracefully with careful cellaring.
Squealing Pig Rose RRP $21.99
Australia’s No. 1 Rosé*, this is a classic from Marlborough, New Zealand. It is a crisp and refreshing dry Rosé with nectarine and cherry flavours and it is best paired with fresh seafood (try seared scallops or grilled salmon), pork, light salads, Spanish and Thai spices, curries and soft cheeses. Perfect for summer served over ice!
Seppelt The Great Entertainer Chardonnay RRP $17.00
Seppelt The Great Entertainer Chardonnay is a fresh and lively crowd pleasing drop. The palate carries flavours of sweet stone fruits, citrus peel and pear combined with a creamy texture and a hint of toasty oak and is therefore great for pairing alongside roast chicken with pancetta and thyme, barbequed seafood, salads or pork fillet with grilled nectarines.
Yellowglen Sunset Spritz Spritzed Rosé infused with wild berries $14.99
The palate is soft, light and refreshing with plenty of juicy red berry fruit. Thanks to its clear, crisp finish, this spritzed wine pairs well with grilled salmon, paella with chicken and prawns or Thai beef salad. It also pairs perfectly with light pizzas such as prosciutto and buffalo mozzarella or prawn, tomato and rocket pizza.
Yellowglen Sunset Spritz Chardonnay Pinot Noir and Prosecco infused with elderflower and lime $14.99
The perfect refresher, the palate is crisp and light with a long, zesty citrus finish so therefore pairs well with light canapés (particularly seafood or citrus based), antipasto, shellfish, sushi, creamy sauces, pastries, biscuits and cakes – in particular lemon and almond polenta cake.
