Friday Drinks Radio 4BC 9 May

Mother's Day was the focus of last Friday's chat. A few white blends and a neat fizz were the tips:

Listen in here

Wines to look out for:

Lindeman’s Early Harvest Semillon Sauvignon Blanc 2013 ($15). Deliberately picked early to reduce the alcohol content, the push here is the "lighter alcohol and calories" market. Twenty five percent less in fact after reading the label. There’s green melon, guava and tropical fruit freshness. Even some peeled cucumber aromas. The wine is certainly clean, crisp and light in the mouth. I was pleasantly impressed and I would recommend it for those in the market for such a wine.

Voyager Estate Sauvignon Blanc Semillon 2013 ($24) Fresh, clean and oozing tropical fruit goodness, a wine you can easily get stuck into. I can easily see this on your table at lunch. The simple refreshing delivery of the fruit assures this gets a big tick from me.

Taltarni Tache 2010 ($26) is a pinkish looking drop which smells a little like strawberries. There’s some texture present via some biscuity characters and a strawberry kiss which flows through to a long, enjoyable finish which is not too dry.  Tache means stained and a dash of Cabernet Sauvignon gives the “stained” appearance.

All are readily available.
