Oregon Wine for Mother’s Day
This year why not indulge your Mother with a wine she’ll adore! Some amazing wines are emerging from Oregon in the US, made sustainably and with real love…
Kelley Fox is a forward-thinking, super-talented, female wine-maker in the Willamette Valley, Oregon. She’s involved in every step of the winemaking process, from planting and growing the grapes following biodynamic principles, to making award-winning wines.
A beautiful wine, in colour as well as taste, is Kelley Fox Nerthus 2020 available at Hedonism for £35.70.
With plenty of vitality and freshness, this wine is made from Early muscat and Pinot gris, all hand-picked, then some pressed in whole clusters to give the golden pink hue to the wine. The Nerthus has aromas of fresh peach and apricot, as well as more floral and mineral notes. Named after the Norse goddess of prosperity, fertility and peace, this wine has all the ingredients for a joyful Mother’s Day.
If it weren’t for the sparkle in your mother’s eye…well need we say more? Give her some extra sparkle this Mother’s Day with Sokol Blosser Evolution Sparkling on promotion at Harvey Nichols for just £19.20 a bottle.
This is blend of grape varieties, including some Gewurztraminer and Muscat which gives it flavours of fresh lychee and tangerine, along with notes of pear and orange blossoms. A wonderfully aromatic wine, perfect for brunch, picnics and fruit-based desserts.
