Easter Self Care Package

919 Wines

$150.00

This Easter may be a bit different than Easter's in the past, but we hope that you are still able to observe this holiday with the ones closest to you. You may not all be in the same room, but we encourage you to make use of technology and appreciate that we can enjoy each others company without physically being together. To help you enjoy, we have put together a fabulous Easter wine pack that is sure to keep you smiling and cheersing with loved ones over video-conferencing! 

To start off, we have included our Ruby Fortified. This was once called "Redemption Ruby" and was available to the Lutheran Congregation. This Shiraz-based fortified is full of red fruit, spice and chocolate flavours and pairs well with rich meat stews, coffee, cheese and chocolate. Next we have included our 2018 Petit Manseng. This fresh, floral white is floral and full of honey notes, finishing with a creamy, dry palate. This pairs magically with lighter meats, fish and cheese plates.2017 Sangiovese is sweet, savoury and smokey. This lighter style red is the perfect pairing for your charcuterie board as it pairs extremely well with cured meats. 2016 Touriga Nacional is savoury, smokey, spicy and rich with sweet & sour cherry flavour. Pair this with a lovely lamb roast or a fresh pomegranate, walnut and rocket salad.2017 Tempranillo has the flavours of cherry ripe is a bottle: cherry, coconut and chocolate. This juicy palate can stand up to a bit of spice and pairs nicely with red meat.Last but not least, we're including the crowd-pleaser, our 2016 Durif! This is a bold drink, dense with flavours of dark berries, pepper and coffee. Bold, firm tannins and a palate that lingers; we recommend decanting this wine for optimal enjoyment. Pair this with a hearty steak, dark chocolate or a mulberry pavlova.

This offer includes free shipping.

How long should I cellar my wine?

All our wines can be consumed as soon as they are released, however you may prefer to cellar the wines if you prefer to do so. Good cellars are cool without being cold, and have stable year-round temperature, ideally about 10-16℃. The cellaring times listed here are a general guide, and will vary with the storage conditions and the vintage of the wine.

Serving wine

Chilled and cool wine can be lovely and refreshing, and will bring out the crispness of a wine. We recommend that all white and sparkling wines are chilled then allowed to come to a cool temperature to allow the aromas and textures to delight you. Red wines can be served at ambient temperature in winter, however we recommend chilling red wine in the summer and placing the bottle into a wine cooler to prevent it warming too much.

Tip: You can freeze left-over wine (we know, what's that?) into ice blocks and use them to rapidly chill a warm glass of wine. Alternatively, freeze grapes or purchase some stainless steel "ice cubes". Avoid adding ice as melting water will change the flavour balance of your wine.

Fun party game: Try serving the same wine at two different temperatures and see how the temperature affects the wine flavour.

Aged wines may throw a deposit in the bottle. This is harmless (its the pigment from the grape skins), and can be removed by decanting or using a wine strainer. White wines that have been in the fridge for a long time may have a deposit that looks a little like sand. This is cream of tartar caused by the natural fruit acids un-dissolving. Careful decanting will leave this behind in the bottle.
