Wine Of The Week

Rose 1

Pour les Amour

This elegant bottle with the French sounding name is in fact a true blue Australian label from the Adelaide Hills. We discovered a feature article on the wine in a fashion magazine of all things, but with its elegant looks, fresh crisp flavour, it's been in the fridge for most of the Summer. Aptly named Pour les Amour (Pour the Love), you can buy on-line at bird in hand $30 per bottle plus $10 delivery, so better value and less chance of running out if you buy per dozen or at least a half.

Varietal aromas include lifted strawberries, cherries and watermelon. Fresh strawberry and cherry flavours are enhanced by a crisp acid and a long, clean finish.
