As another month begins, Vine Online continues to provide specials that lead the industry. While there is always a wide range of specials available, there are four which stand out.
The Zeffer Apple Cider is perfect for the summer. It’s an apple cider imbued with cinnamon, vanilla, and blackberry. The combination of these ingredients is intended to evoke memories of warm apple pie and vanilla ice cream. The drink is well-balanced and has a depth of flavour – characteristic of Zeffer, and evident in their other offerings ranging from crisp apple cider to real ginger beer.
Outback Jack’s Australian Cab Merlot 2017 is infused with berries and chocolate, with a touch of oak, and fruits like plum, black currant, and berry. This complex wine took home the Gold and Silver awards at the China Wine and Spirits event, on top of the Bronze Medal at the Cairns Wine Show.
Trinity Hill’s Shepherds Croft Hawkes Bay Sauvignon Blanc 2017 is a wine with more gentle flavours. A mix of lime, citrus, and lemongrass is complemented by stone-fruit, and the acidity is balanced, giving it a textured presence - complemented by its slightly sweet taste. It is recommended to be matched with Asian fare, or goat’s cheese.
Finally, Longbush’s Big River Gisborne Chardonnay 2016 is a tribute to the Waipaoa, Ngaruroro, and Wairau. It exudes the warmth and typical textures of a Gisborne Chardonnay - ripe fruit with a light citrus finish and a buttery palate. It should be served slightly chilled to guests.
If these aren’t your choices, there are still many other specials of fine wine, beer and cider at the Vine Online store. Drop by https://www.vineonline.co.nz/ and take a look for yourself.
