Wine Wednesday! Silver Linings Do Happen, Even In Wine!

by Jennifer Stinnett on February 20, 2013

It’s Wednesday and it’s that crazy time between the dead of winter with cabin fever and the hope of spring. Just the other day I realized at 5:30pm I could still see light in the sky! Spring hope and a little silver lining to take us out of the winter doldrums!

I was given this wine by Beverage Trade Network to try out and review. Typically, I don’t pick up white wines, but when given a wine with a name like Silver Lining, how could you go wrong? So chilled it and opened it (it’s a screw cap) I did!

I love this wine … and that’s saying a lot coming from a red wine drinker. This wine has a lot of flavors rolling around into it. It was better to me the second day, the first day gave me a little bite to it — but on the second day … ohhh la la! It’s full of flavors like passionfruit, gooseberry and nectarine! It’s a bit on the dry side … but nothing that will make you wish for extra glasses of water!

This wine gave me hope of spring for sure … I know this wine will taste so great with a nice crisp salad. Nova Wine Group recommends having this as an aperitif or paired with seafood. I did drink this wine on it’s own … but I appreciated it much more with my salad!

So, I’m curious … are you a fan of Australian / New Zealand wines? This was my first … barring the Yellow Tail brand. Curious on your thoughts! Share them with me in the comments below!
