The sun is starting to shine again, and picnic season is officially kicking off! We’ve picked out a bunch of wines that are perfect for this weather transition to give our Spring pack a complete range; from our lighter-bodied Black Label Pinot Blanc, to our fuller, fruiter White Label Shiraz (save that one for a cloudy day!)
So, what’s in the Spring pack?
2018 Black Label Pinot Blanc // current release
2019 True Colours Chardonnay // current release
2013 White Label Bon Blanc // museum release
2020 True Colours Pinot Noir // new release
2018 Black Label Four + One // current release
2019 White Label Shiraz // pre release
The 2018 Black Label Pinot Blanc is a delicate wine that’s crisp, floral, and super refreshing. Drink it on a warm day, paired with lighter foods such as salads and mild flavoured fish (this wine is crying out for fish tacos!)
2013 – what a throwback! Our 2013 White Label Bon Blanc has been aged for 8 years, and in this time it developed so much complexity. Those who have a taste for full-bodied, aged whites with racy acid will LOVE this drop!
Ask any of the Rob Dolan team what their favourite Spring wine is, chances are they will say Chardonnay! Just like the Spring weather, Chardonnay has so many layers to it – it’s truly the perfect all-rounder. Our 2019 True Colours Chardonnay is all about fruit, with just a touch of oak. Try this with poached salmon, chicken, and salads with grilled peach or mango – you won’t regret it!
We’re also very excited to see what you think of our new-release 2020 True Colours Pinot Noir before it hits the shelves! Expect ripe fruit flavours with a little spice, this wine is the best thing to pack in your picnic basket and perfect with charcuterie.
We also figured we’d have to include the 2018 Black Label Four + One, after all, it’s a Huddle Club favourite. A blend of Sangiovese, Tempranillo, Barbera and Nebbiolo, plus a dash of Shiraz for good measure. This wine is designed to match perfectly with pizza however it’s capable of so much more – try it out with pulled lamb or your next BBQ.
Finally, another exciting sneak-peak, our pre-release 2019 White Label Shiraz is everything you want in a cool-climate shiraz. It delivers on all the shiraz flavours you love without being too rich in intensity. Bring it out with braised beef or a strong cheese – YUM!
All of these wines will be available to purchase individually on the website and in the cellar to members only this Spring, don’t forget you’ll receive your member discount on top!
