It’s Party Time

Dish - - IT’S PARTY TIME -

How about putting to­gether a crack­ingly cel­e­bra­tory se­lec­tion of drinks that’ll put a spring on your face and a grin in your step this sea­son. All of th­ese drinks match su­perbly with any of the party dishes.

The brand-new Tohu Rewa Méth­ode Tra­di­tion­nelle Marl­bor­ough Rosé 2015 ($40) is vel­vety and rich and with creamy-smooth, berry­bri­oche notes. It’s stylish, finely struc­tured and just in­cred­i­bly pretty and de­li­cious to drink. to­huwines.co.nz

If you’re look­ing for some­thing tasty and a bit more wal­let­friendly, I rec­om­mend the Veuve Laper­rière Blanc de Blancs Brut NV ($16).

This rich, creamy, cashewy, peachy bub­bles with a hint of sweet­ness is made en­tirely from chardon­nay (that’s where the peach­i­ness comes from). It’s a grin-in­duc­ing, bis­cu­ity lit­tle sip that will wow the crowds. the­good­wineco.co.nz

Or go down a dif­fer­ent track with the new-re­lease Peck­ham’s Home Block Re­serve Cider 2018 750ml ($19.99). Fea­tur­ing la­bel art­work by Alex Peck­ham’s fa­ther Michael, this rich, juicyyet-dry cider is crafted from heir­loom cider ap­ples such as Trem­lett’s Bit­ter, Harry Mas­ters Jersey and Kingston Black. Crisp, com­plex, deeply flavoured and tex­tu­ral, it’s a style that’ll work per­fectly across all th­ese party flavours. peck­hams.co.nz

If beer’s on the menu, make it a stun­ner. The Bach Brew­ing Golden Sau­vin 328ml ($4.50) is brewed with Nel­son sau­vin, motueka, rakau and wai-iti hops along­side a splash of manuka honey with the aid of kölsch ale yeast for an ul­tra-fresh, cit­rus-led beer with grape­fruit pip bit­ter­ness, bis­cu­ity malts, and a hint of hon­eyed sweet­ness.
