Weekend Wine - Belinda Jackson

From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 3:20 pm on 13 June 2014

Giesen The Brothers Chardonnay Ful, rich, textural and intense - a very grown up Chardonnay for just a 2012! Toasty, powerful and rewarding - a gorgeous wine for lovers of real Chardonnay. Ara select Blocks 2012 Pinot Noir Concentrate berry fruit on the nose. Youthful but very drinkable - dris a little on the finish as the tannins take over - would be wonderful with roast lamb Greenhough Pinot Blanc 2012 - Nelson Juicy Nashi pear aromas, lovely textural wine - so kind of a bit oily as opposed to watery feel in the mouth. Rich, full-flavoured and delicious - something completely different and highly recommended! Be great with some pate or perhaps pork steaks in a greenpeppercorn sauce.
