The year’s gone by with a gallop,
And now that summer rears its graceful head,
We seem to find ourselves back on track,
The best performers of the year before,
Of course, are bursting out of the gate,
But we also thought a leg-up was necessary,
For some fresh young contenders,
They come in all colours and varieties,
Yet the line-up seems to be stronger than ever,
Perhaps you favour a racy young white,
Or is your money on one more mature, big and dark?
You might well back something lively that starts with a bang,
Whichever it is you fancy,
Make sure you don’t forget the Red Rum.
Oddbins; nothing but front runners!
A strong favourite; lightly coloured and youthful with an undeniable elegance. It’s fast out of the gates and performs exceptionally well in sunny conditions.
First Creek Hunter Valley Chardonnay 2015
Already illustriously awarded, which has lead it to become a household name, it’s racy, sharp as a whip but perfectly balanced.
Manuka Springs Pinot Noir 2016
Pinot Noir seems to really deliver when guided by a firm New Zealand hand; there is an intensity and concentration that really seems to put it a nose ahead of the rest.
Bollinger Special Cuvée NV Champagne
To the victor, goes the spoils…
