Three Delicious Wines To Usher In Spring

Because there's wine, and there's spring wine.

Spring Wines Dan Murphy's Rose Pinot Noir Gewurtztraminer
 

There's wine, and then there's Spring wine.

The latter is usually soft and dreamy and makes every day feel like 4pm on a Sunday afternoon.

In tribute to Spring Wine, we popped into Dan Murphy's to find some of the dreamiest wines available. As always, please drink responsibly – and with a small cheese platter.

 
 

 
 

Sticks Pinot Noir ($20)

The red that converts even the most strident whites drinkers.

This Yarra Valley Pinot is silky smooth with just enough heft to see you through when the temperature suddenly drops after 6pm (classic Toowoomba). It's incredibly easy to drink and excellent value, making it the perfect drop for entertaining. Buy a case and stock up the cellar; you'll keep coming back to this crowd pleaser again and again.

Gerard Betrand Côte des Roses Rosé ($19)

Let's be real here: most of us have already tried this rosé, just because the bottle is so pretty...

We are eagerly awaiting the rosé craze to hit Toowoomba, and we'll happily start with this one. Fresh and dry with the merest hint of sweetness, this is the perfect wine for a Sunday picnic in your backyard. Pair with some cheese, dips and market-fresh bread for the ultimate celebration of spring.

Dopff Au Moulin Gewürztraminer ($22)

If you haven't boarded the Gewurtztraminer train yet, it's time to buy your ticket.

The Austrian varietal – known just as 'gewurtz' – has a characteristic rose petal finish. This Alsatian drop makes for very easy drinking at a very affordable price. There's a hint of Turkish Delight with some lychee that makes it just delicious with spicy Asian dishes. But it's equally delicious with the setting sun and a bowl of Kettle chips.
