Spread the love

Unsure what to get your father for Father’s Day? Frost has done the (ahem) hard work and tested a collection of wine that would make a great Father’s Day present. If you’re feeling generous, buy a few….

– Nottage Hill Pinot Noir: A fruity, refreshing wine. It’s quite sweet and really takes the edge off a hard day! Sweet flavours of cherry and strawberry with hints of mint and fennel are complemented by spicy notes and sweet cigar box oak characters. Perfect with an oriental menu or thoroughly enjoyable with roast duck. RRP £6.73.

– Kumala Cabernet Shiraz: Perfect if your father likes chocolate. It’s a good, rich wine.and tastes good with red meat. A rich nuttiness follows through on the palette, with a lingering aftertaste with a touch of chocolate. The wine will make a perfect partner to fillet steaks, lamb chops and hearty stews. RRP£6.79.

– Kumala Sauvignon Blanc: A refreshing white wine that is citrus and tropical fruit flavors with very aromatic notes of green chilies, herbs, asparagus and gooseberries. It really hits the spot. A light-bodied, dry wine with hints of gooseberry and lime on the nose. Floral, crisp, pungent fruit on the palate with good concentration and length. Perfect with meats and seafood. RRP£6.79.

– Fish Hoek Sauvignon Blanc: Some wines taste too acidic. This one doesn’t – with no bad aftertaste. One of my favorites. Attractive New World mouth-filling style. Tropical fruit salad spiked with a sweet and sour twist of lime mingles with a good green fig and nettle intensity. On the palate, there are hints of gooseberry, a nice acidity and a lovely lingering aftertaste – made for easy quaffing. This is a wine that can be sipped, but will also lend itself beautifully to seafood, light poultry dishes and salads. RRP£6.99.
