The Region: Riverland, Australia.
The Riverland enjoys a consistent Mediterranean climate with long days of sunshine resulting in sun kissed grapes and reliable and sustainable growing conditions. Woven around the Murray River, the Riverland wine region accounts for more than 50% of South Australia’s total crush.
Deep salmon colour with spiced strawberry and citrus aromas. Light to medium bodied with crisp hints of red cherry and fresh strawberry flavours; barely off-dry, refreshing finish. Enjoy with summer salads, turkey or beef burgers or grilled stuff peppers.
New Coolers Only at The Vineyard
It might not feel like it yet, but summer is right around the corner. Well, maybe not quite, – I did hear a rumor that summer will happen this year. But now is the time to start thinking about summer wines, and just in time is a brand new flavour from Island Mist.
New Strawberry Watermelon White Shiraz pairs two classic and refreshing flavours into one irresistible wine. It is so delicious, you won’t want to just enjoy this wine in the summer, it’s the perfect year-round sipper. Introducing a fresh, new Island Mist flavour just in time for summer. New Strawberry Watermelon White Shiraz has candied strawberry and watermelon aromas; light body, and the medium sweet flavour of refreshing strawberry and watermelon. Available in April.
Serving Idea: Strawberry Watermelon Margaritas
Combine Island Mist Strawberry Watermelon with Ice and Tequila (to taste) in a blender and mix to desired consistency. Serve in salt rimmed margarita glasses garnished with a wedge of fresh watermelon. Enjoy!
Just in time to make for spring and summer, these are the perfect drink to enjoy ice cold on the patio.
We have some great and interesting new flavours in stock now and even more coming in April:
Banana Pineapple Paradise
Acai Raspberry Rapture
Very Black Cherry
. Blackberry Blast
Splendid Straw Blush
Kick off the summer with New Island Mist Hard Pink Lemonade and Hard Limeade for a limited time at The Vineyard.
These kits will be available mid-March.
