Drinks editor Jane Thomson picks three crowd-pleasing wines. Jacob’s Creek Barossa Signature Riesling 2016 $20 Dry, crisp and zingy, yet deliciously floral, a riesling like this one is the ultimate party wine. With lashing of lemon sherbet and green apple, it’s the perfect match for canapés, seafood or spicy Asian-inspired dishes. Rymill coonawarra The Yearling Shiraz 2016 $15 Packed with blueberries, blackcurrants and ripe plums, this estate-grown shiraz is an absolute bargain, beating out wines twice the price. Soft and juicy with a lick of spice, it’s great with a grilled steak. Oakridge Overthe Shoulder Pinot Grigio 2016 $23 A fresh, bright and crunchy wine that’ll fast become a fave, thanks to its generous red apple, green pear and lemon infused palate. Delightful drinking on a warm day with a lunch platter of salads and cold meats.
