As the world awakens from its winter slumber, there’s no better time to embrace the vibrant flavours of spring with a glass of wine in hand. With the warmer weather and blooming flowers comes a shift in our palate preferences, making it the perfect opportunity to explore a new lineup of refreshing wines. Whether you’re lounging in the garden or planning a picnic in the park, here’s our curated selection of wines to elevate your springtime sipping experience.

1. Sauvignon Blanc: The Essence of Spring

With its crisp acidity and lively fruit flavours, Sauvignon Blanc is the quintessential springtime sipper. Hailing from New Zealand’s Marlborough region, Pa Road Sauvignon Blanc is an explosion of zesty citrus and tropical fruits. Pair it with fresh salads, seafood dishes, or simply enjoy it on its own as you soak up the sun.

2. Pinot Grigio: Light and Zesty

For a wine that embodies the essence of spring, look no further than Pinot Grigio. With its delicate floral aromas and bright acidity, this wine is perfect for lazy afternoons and al fresco dining. Il Casato Pinot Grigio is an excellent example from Italy with ripe pear, apple, and citrus flavours. Looking for an interesting alternative? Torrontés is Argentina’s answer to Pinot Grigio, Viñalba Torrontés is wonderfully refreshing with white peaches, lychees and pear flavours. Serve chilled alongside grilled vegetables or light pasta dishes for a delightful springtime feast.

3. Rosé: Pink Perfection

No springtime wine list would be complete without the inclusion of rosé. Whether it’s pale and dry or bold and fruity, rosé wines offer a spectrum of flavours to suit every palate. Amicale Pinot Grigio Rosé from Italy is a delight with delicate notes of citrus, white flowers and summer fruits. A very elegant, crisp and refreshing Rosé with aromas of pink grapefruit and exotic lime. Pair your spring rosé with charcuterie boards, grilled salmon, or simply enjoy it as a refreshing aperitif with friends.

4. Chardonnay: Unleash the Sunshine in a Glass

Chardonnay, when crafted with finesse, embodies the essence of spring with its crisp acidity and vibrant fruit flavours. Opt for unoaked or lightly oaked expressions for a fresh and lively experience. French Bulldog Chardonnay is a great example of this – bursting with white peach and apricot, yet well-balanced with buttery notes. Chardonnay pairs beautifully with grilled chicken, seafood risotto, or creamy pasta dishes.

5. Grenache/Garnacha: Savour the Fruits of Spring

Grenache wines offer a burst of ripe fruit flavours that are perfect for springtime sipping. Explore Grenache-based red blends from the Rhône Valley, such as Les Artistes Côtes du Rhône Rouge. The rich and luscious palate of cherries and blackberries is accompanied by hints of spice that add depth with a velvety finish. Pair with grilled vegetables, barbecue fare, or charcuterie for a delightful outdoor feast.

6. Sparkling Wine: Effervescence for Every Occasion

No springtime celebration is complete without the pop of a cork and the fizz of sparkling wine. You can’t go wrong with Prosecco, and this Organic beauty from Bacio della Luna is perfect for springtime al fresco sipping. Looking for something unique?  Crémant is having a resurgence, and it’s easy to see why. This Crémant de Limoux from James Martin is hailed as a ‘Champagne alternative’, with a golden colour with wonderfully fine and lasting bubbles. Perfect for toasting to the season’s festivities or simply enjoying on a sunny afternoon.
