Wine with Belinda Jackson

From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 3:19 pm on 7 November 2014

Belinda's wine suggestions Taylors Promised Land Cabernet Merlot Soft, fruity, easy going - great choice for the bbq or anytime you need a great value red. The Doctors' Riesling 2014 Fresh and floral nose - almost a hint of sherbet along with chalky, mineral characters. Initial impact is sweet then the fresh acidity sweeps through ensuring the wine is fresh and lively. Flavours last on and on - mouth-wateringly delicious. Just 8.5 alc Awatere River by Louis Vavasour Marlborough Rose 2014 Cream and red berries on the nose, inviting and attractive and quite pronounced. Good breadth of flavour and nicely balanced with a fresh acidity - juicy and succulent - delicious summer drinker.
