Father’s Day wines from Constellation

From the awkward-dancing dad, to the thoughtful father – these  carefully selected wines are the perfect way to thank special dads for their constant supply of love and support.

Paige read that statement and said " Dad's a bit of both of those shall we get him two bottles!!" I pointed out the dancing could get worse!

I was sent some of the wines to try and being a good wife I decided to try them to see if they were fit for Fathers day, hic the first I sampled was the  Fish Hoek Sauvignon Blanc

Described as an  attractive New World mouth-filling style. It has a citrusy taste that I love a gooseberry, grapefruit flavour  This is a wine that can be sipped and sipped, great for Dad to watch a movie with.
RRP £6.99

Fish Hoek Shiraz:

 Ripe, juicy red fruit with exciting vanilla and black pepper on the nose follows through for a perfect long finish of optimum fruit and beautifully integrated wood tannin. Goes superbly with grilled steak or game.
RRP £6.99

Nottage Hill Cabernet Shiraz, Chris was very pleased with this red, he likes the fruity spicy wines and found this full and rich and a smooth taste..
It has a plum and blackcurrants taste with spice undertones. Its said to be good with slow roasted meats and Morrocan food.

Nottage Hill Pinot Noir: Sweet flavours of cherry and strawberry with hints of mint an 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: 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 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

Chardonnay Chenin Blanc Semillon

Vintage: 2008

This wine we shared and is described as a fresh floral nose with hints of pineapple and grassy fruit. I tasted grapefruit almost lemon and I loved the crisp sharp taste. Chris who is not so keen on white liked the fact it was not sweet and liked the acidity on his palate. Perfect with chicken and Thai dishes.
This Father’s Day get your dad off his feet and let him sit back and relax with a glass of one of our wonderful wines:
