Looking for wedding wine is challenging, so choosing three very different styles is perhaps the best way to ensure you have something for everyone.
Sauvignon Blanc is a crowd favourite no matter the time of year. Fresh and vibrant, packed with citrus and flavours, it’s a refreshing, uplifting wine and great with seafood.
As a contrast, a rich, flavour-packed Chardonnay can be just the thing for pairing with chicken and white meats and barbecued foods. With the toastiness from French oak together with a richer texture than Sauvignon Blanc, this wine style is a weightier option.
For a red wine, Pinot Noir is just perfect.
Flavoursome but not too heavy, this style works well for enjoyment at a lunchtime event or evening. Think cherry flavours with a dash of boysenberry, some warm spice notes and a gentle, smooth texture and you have a delightful wine that suits many food styles, especially red meats, ham, barbecued and roast dishes.
And to be honest, some guests will enjoy a Sauvignon Blanc to start with, then a Chardonnay with the entrée and a Pinot Noir with the main – sorted!
