Hosted by Helen and Jo from Bellwether wines
  • 'S' Soave Alpha Zeta Italy
    A pale lemon coloured wine, with clean, bright aromas of almond blossom. With fresh acidity, the palate is ripe and concentrated, full of apple and pear flavours. The finish is lively and crisp.
  • Snapper Rock Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc New Zealand
    Light, crisp and super citrussy with grapefruit taking a lead role before the classic kiwi fruit notes come through.
  • Willowood White Zinfandel (Rose) USA
    A lively, fruity rosť wine with aromas of red summer fruits and an attractive crisp sweeetness on the palate.
  • Rioja Rosado Finca Manzanos Spain
    Brilliant rose colour. Bright strawberries on the nose with a very balanced palate and long finish.
  • Franschhoek Vineyards Shiraz Reserve S Africa
    A focused and elegant wine showing bright violets and ground white pepper spice on the nose. The refined palate finishes with rich red fruits and delicate tannin that supports the structure in a deliciously lingering manner with finesse and grace.
  • Casa Defra, Prosecco Oro Spumante Italy
    A delightful sparkler with aromatic apple and pear flavours on the nose followed by a crisp palate of succulent fruits. Just off dry with an enticing, bright finish.
