Ah Spring, it’s here again just like it always promised. And if you’re over the cold and glad to see the back of Winter, you probably know exactly what the late comedian Robin Williams meant when he said that Spring is Nature’s way of saying “Let’s Party!” It’s something our friends at the Oatley Wine Group certainly do understand and they’ve found us some fresh and exciting wines for this new season. These wines, Wildflower Cabernet Sauvignon and Wildflower Sauvignon Blanc have come a long way across the Nullarbor and just like the region’s flora, the wines are distinctly Western Australian. The Cab Sav flaunts delicate flavours and fine tannins, that have been refined over time from the region’s mild summers, steady springs and cool sea breezes by showcasing vibrant plum and dark berry textures. By contrast these same conditions produce a completely different result in the Sav Blanc. A gentle, refreshing acidity that comes from the influence of the cooling ocean breezes which only serves to enhance fresh herbal notes and the intense citrus fruits. Great news is they loved the Sav Blanc so much in Tasmania that they awarded it the trophy for ‘Best Sauvignon Blanc’ at the Royal Hobart Wine Show. So when you do visit one our Southern Cross Motel Group properties over the next few months, keep a look-out for our Spring Wine Special and join the Wildflower Party!
