WINE TALK

THEY may have been on the shelves since Fe­bru­ary, but now is the time one can truly in­dulge in Easter treats with­out hav­ing to feel guilty or make ex­cuses.

Hot Cross Buns al­most feel healthy if you ig­nore the sugar and don’t add but­ter, but it’s the spec­tac­u­lar pack­ag­ing of the eggs which catches the eye of ev­ery choco­late lover.

The dizzy­ing ar­ray of colours and de­signs are so much fun, and it’s no won­der egg hunts re­main pop­u­lar, bring­ing out the youth­ful com­pet­i­tive­ness in all of us.

These days I’d be more in­clined to el­bow some­one out of the way for a glass of bub­bly than an Easter Egg, but I find it much eas­ier to just make sure there’s enough of the stuff to go around.

And this Easter I’ll add Brown Brothers Pros­ecco Rose to the buf­fet ta­ble.

It meets the brief when it comes to eye-catch­ing colour, both in­side and out.

The limited edi­tion bot­tle was de­signed in col­lab­o­ra­tion with the RMIT School of Fash­ion and Tex­tiles.

When the cork is re­leased it pours with vigour, leav­ing a white, pow­der-puff like cap for few sec­onds over the blush pink wine.

It has a del­i­cate aroma with a hint of musky rose and straw­berry, be­fore the light fruiti­ness of the bub­bly, berry-tinged liq­uid that leans ever so slightly to­ward sweet­ness be­fore the drier fin­ish.

This Pros­ecco Rose doesn’t need to be part­nered with food – but it’s ver­sa­tile enough for both savoury and sweet eats.

Which is enough to make ev­ery bunny smile.
