The Mistress of Wine Recommends:
Chapel Down Bacchus 2019 England
Spring is most definitely in the air which means I am starting to want white wine again! From Chapel Down in Tenterden, Kent this is a really refreshing, unoaked Sauvignon-esque style of wine made from the Bacchus grape which is redolent of elderflower and some grapefruit pith. Tangy, vibrant and delicious, try this with roasted veggies and goats cheese. A great Spring Sipper!
Trinity Hill Hawke’s Bay Syrah 2019 New Zealand
This is such an inviting wine; the colour is deep and youthful and the nose is full of really ripe, yet soft black fruits - so succulent and appealing, youthful and vibrant. The palate is lifted and fresh but still heady and opulent but the alcohol at 13.5% and fresh acidity makes it lively as well alluring. There's enough softness and primary fruit to enjoy on its own as the tannins are very subtle but there is enough structure to pair well with many different dishes - we drank this with Mexican food! Truly a delightful wine!
