Although it is usually a matter of personal preference whether you drink a red or a white wine, it is always advisable to start your wine drinking journey with white wine. This is because whites are lighter and more easy going than reds. We went for an Italian pinot grigio, an Australian Riesling and a sauvignon blanc from New Zealand.
This selection includes:
1 x Torresella Pinot Grigio - Italy - 750ml SHOP NOW
Pinot Grigio is usually delicately fragrant and mildly floral with lightly lemon-citrus flavors. A perfect introduction to what is called crispiness.
1 x A. Scherer Riesling 2014 - 750ml SHOP NOW SHOP NOW
An attractive nose of petrol, honeysuckle, peach and apricot. On the palate, off-dry with notes of fresh glass and lime blossom, with vibrant minerality and a pleasantly acidity. The finish is clean and crisp. Medium-bodied and flavorful.
1 x Twin Islands Sauvignon Blanc - New Zealand - 750ml SHOP NOW
This wine is brimming with juicy kiwi and citrus flavours. It is a crisp and light bodied white wine that refreshes the mind and soul, thus making it a beloved summer wine. Fruitiness - not sweetness - is what you will experiment here.
Wine blends taste awesome but they are not that useful if you’re trying to learn. The 3 wines mentioned above tend to be produced as 100% variety wines, which is perfect for expanding your palate.
