We asked the VIC Sales team to put together their top 5 wines for the Easter Weekend! Here’s their top 5’s that they plan on opening over the long weekend

Aidan's top 5!

  1. Rob Dolan ‘White Label’ Chardonnay – Extraordinarily well refined chardonnay at that price point. Masterful oak integration.
  2. L.A.S Vino CBDB – What an interesting combo. Rich and layered it packs a delightful punch.
  3. Clyde Park Estate Pinot Noir – Gonna have a crack making a duck pizza to go with this.
  4. 2018 Devils Cave Shiraz – Great example of Victorian shiraz. A wine I will be sharing with my old man
  5. Sidewood Abel Pinot Noir – Drinks like a $80 burgundy. Such a joy to drink

Alex's top 5!

  1. Leeuwin ‘Art Series’ Riesling – A delicate but energetic Riesling, full of citrus notes and lemon sherbet
  2. Paringa Estate ‘Estate’ Pinot Gris – Fresh and vibrant with pear and green apple
  3. Medhurst Rose – Great with seafood, bursting with strawberry & raspberry flavours
  4. Port Phillip Estate Pinot Noir – Black cherry and raspberry making this Mornington Pinot soft with a balanced mid palate and fine tannins
  5. Devil’s Cave Shiraz – A vibrant bouquet loaded with fruit and tightly packed tannins

Ben's top 5!

  1. Clyde Park ‘Locale’ Pinot Noir – Great intro to Pinot that bats well above its price! Geelong Pinot at its best! 
  2. Leeuwin ‘Art Series’ Riesling – Lemon & Lime – Delicate – perfect for a warmer Easter weekend.
  3. Devil’s Cave Shiraz – Cracking Shiraz from Heathcote – packed with tannins!
  4. Howard Vineyard Rose – Strawberries & Cream!
  5. Pizzini Prosecco – My go-to Prosecco to start an evening, or a long weekend!

John's top 5!

  1. Howard Vineyard Sparkling Rose – Nothing better to kick off the day with some strawberries and cream in a bottle. Perfect with those salmon dishes on Good Friday.
  2. Clyde Park Estate Chardonnay – I love Chardonnay, this Chardonnay is outstanding value for money. Elegant, persistent and with all the hallmarks you love from the Geelong region.
  3. Medhurst YRB – With 50-50 balance of unoaked Pinot Noir and Shiraz. It’s the perfect all-rounder with youthful vibrancy and slurpable appeal
  4. Three Dark Horses Grenache – I love the super lifted perfume and juicy core to this wine. It has excellent texture and is super approachable without compromising detail and complexities. #bestbbqwine
  5. Chambers Grand Muscat – Delicious fortifieds are are always overlooked. This rich and sumptuous Muscat is an absolute perfect match with Easter eggs!!

Michael's top 5!

  1. Clyde Park Estate Chardonnay – Barrel fermented, rich & generous chardonnay as it should be.
  2. Geoff Merrill Cliento Sangiovese  – Takes me to Tuscany – bold – masculine Sang, gets better in the glass.
  3. Rob Dolan ‘White Label’ Pinot Noir – Has to be one of the best Pinot’s in our Portfolio, complex, and velvety tannins that run forever. 
  4. Pierro LTC – ‘LITTLE TOUCH OF CHARDONNAY’ gives this wine more layers. The citrus/melon notes of the Chardonnay are harmony with the ‘not over grassy’ notes of the Semillon.
  5. Medhurst Sauvignon Blanc – Spends a hint of time in older oak, allowing the robust aromas to settle whilst adding some viscosity to the palate.

Tom's top 5!

  1. Three Dark Horses SGT – Great blend, juicy & vibrant red fruits. Works great with the Easter BBQ.
  2. Serengale Rose  – Rose for Days! Sun’s out and rose is flowing. Strawberries & cream with a turkish delight finish
  3. A.T Richardson ‘Chockstone’ Shiraz – A soft, generous Shiraz for Easter. Plenty of blackberries & dark chocolate.
  4. Clyde Park Estate Pinot Gris – Oldest Pinot Gris vines in Victoria, great colour due to skin contact. A delicate and fruity palate.
  5. Rob Dolan ‘White Label’ Chardonnay – A perfect mineral chardonnay from the Yarra Valley. Fruit forward Chardonnay, balance in acidity & structure.
