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

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”
All are readily available.
