I think all our Mum's deserve a special treat this Mother's Day! We've picked out a feel special drink we know they will love.
First up is the Susanna Balbo Signature this wine invites us to discover a new world. Every time you open a bottle, the atmosphere is flooded with a magical presence. Perhaps it is because of its special flavour or because the wine begins to tell stories of dedication, work and dreams made.
Pale gold with bright reflections. On the nose, this wine seduces with hints of white pear, white flowers and ripe peach. On the palate, it has a beautiful structure and acidity along with enticing fruit flavours. Plenty of body for a wine that shows such delicate aromas and flavours. Fruity, floral and yet still quite dry.
Next is the ever delightful Chateau Bauduc Rosé, you cannot go wrong with this one. This is THE house rosé at Rick Stein's restaurants and has been for many years. The 2019 was also selected for the list at Gordon Ramsay’s restaurants. This wine is GREAT for garden parties and always, always, always sells out! It is also really good with food and pairs surprisingly well with all things spice. We love to drink it with homemade red Thai curry with extra chilli.
For Chateau Bauducs 20th vintage, this dry rosé was made from equal parts of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. The grapes were harvested quite early, in September, and the pale juice quickly ran off the dark skins for a light, crisp wine. It also has a fancy special 20th vintage stamp on the front and back labels.
Is your Mum a Gin lover? Dingle Gin is the one you need! It is produced in The Dingle Distillery, situated on the edge of the scenic coastal town of Dingle on Ireland’s Wild Atlantic Way. Its unique flavour profile is a result of its supply of locally foraged botanicals from its surrounding County Kerry landscape that include rowanberry from the mountain ash trees, fuchsia, bog myrtle, hawthorn and heather. Hand this to your mum along with some tonic and frozen berries to make the perfect G&T!
Next is everyone's favourite rosé Whispering Angel. It is said in the Esclans Valley angels whisper, and if you drink this wine you might hear them...
Whispering Angel is credited with starting the international rosé trend, known to release 3.2 million-bottle vintages. It’s also the brand that introduced rosé to American palates, ranked by Nielsen as the No. 1 selling imported French wine.
This fresh vintage is an elegant whirl of peach, rose water, and summer berries that's lined by citrus and a strawberry-soaked finish. Produced in the cellars of Château d'Esclans, Whispering Angel is a classic Côtes de Provence rosé and has become popular with wine lovers throughout the world.
And finally we have Absolut Raspberri this Vodka has attracted some serious fans throughout the years, mostly for its versatility. Super easy to mix and tastes great! Make your mum a Raspiroska, or treat her to a Raspberri Chocolate Martini. Raspberry is a winner, no matter if muddled, in the mixer or just on top of the drink as a garnish.
A special CHEERS goes out to all the Mum's who are Nurses, Carer's, Teachers, Home School Teachers and Front Line Workers they have got us through so much this year, we would all be lost without them!
