Introducing a bold new taste experience with Young & Co wines
It's the labels that won me! I'm talking about the adventurous new wine brand Young & Co and its luscious lip-smacking new range. Launched under the Constellation Brands New Zealand portfolio, the range includes three red wines – “The Jam” Shiraz, “Cherry Bomb” Pinot Noir and “Berry Riot” Grenache – while a rosé, along with white varietals, will follow later this year. Now, I hear you saying "Deb you can't possibly recommend a wine only on it's label". You are right, and I'm no wine connessiour let me tell you, however I do know when a good Shiraz excites my taste buds.
This new range sourced from some of the world’s leading wine regions, from McLaren Vale in Australia to the south of France, delivers a perfect balance of style and sass while bursting with rich favours sure to tantalise tastebuds. I am pretty happy with anything that comes out the of Mclaren Vale and especially a good Shiraz and this Shiraz did not let me down.
According to Samantha Benney, Marketing Manager, Young & Co, “Research tells us flavour is the #1 consideration for consumers when they are purchasing alcoholic beverages, excluding price and promotions1. This combined with wine drinkers becoming more adventurous with their palate and seeking out different regions, varietals and styles, means that the new Young & Co range ticks all the right boxes in delivering a tantalising taste experience.”
For around $25 a bottle it's worth exploring this new range of rich red wines.
Young & Co is available in BWS nationally from mid-June 2019 and retail for $25 (RRP).
Young & Co Tasting Notes;
The Jam – McLaren Vale Shiraz
The Jam is a rich Shiraz with a glorious attitude evoking an abundance of fruit flavours. This wine offers a lush palate of blackberry and dark plum, accompanied by a playful hint of sweet oak and spice. Jewel-like in colour, it throws tones of deep ruby red. The aroma is an enticing blend of ripe blackberry fruit, mocha and spice.
Cherry Bomb – French Pinot Noir
Cherry Bomb is a flamboyant Pinot Noir that oozes French flair. From the south of France, Cherry Bomb is a wonderfully stylish fusion of colour and flavour, vibrant red in hue and flaunting flavours of raspberry and dark cherry with a perfectly rounded mouthfeel that welcomingly lingers well after the flavour explosion.
Berry Riot – French Grenache
Berry Riot is a Grenache bursting with style and sass, as one would expect from the French. Abundant with the aroma and flavour of red berry fruit, this wine offers seamless and elegant structure. Wonderfully balanced and with a lovely length to finish. Be prepared for unbridled flavour with the Berry Riot.
