Five simple steps to make this Mother's Day POP with Minchinbury bubbles.
For over 100 years Australians have been marking special occasions and holidays with Minchinbury sparkling, so make it a Mother's Day to remember this year by popping an eye-catching bottle of sparkling from iconic Australian wine brand Minchinbury to celebrate and toast mum.
Step One - The bubbles
Some might say this is the most important step! Head to your local Dan Murphy's or BWS and pick up a bottle or three from Minchinbury's range of sparkling wines, which includes a Crisp Classic Brut for more traditional toasting, a Blush Rose Cuvée to add some colour to mum's day, and a Luscious Moscato for those who like life on the sweeter and lighter side.
Step Two - The menu
Minchinbury has worked with TV chef Glenn Flood on a range of delicious recipes, each matched to one of their wines, so why not treat mum to a menu of matched dishes and wines – make sure you pick her favourite foods not yours!
• Start with a cured salmon, green apple and radish salad paired with Minchinbury Crisp Classic Brut
• Move onto a chicken, feta and almond salad alongside the Minchinbury Blush Rose Cuvée
• End with a sweet flourish of crème fraiche panna cotta with orange compote and candied pistachio matched with
Minchinbury Luscious Moscato
Step Three – The setting
To instantly transform any meal into an occasion, transform your dining table with mum's favourite flowers…
Rather than big bunches that can block your guests' view, try several smaller bunches or even single blooms floating in little bowls of water all along the centre of the table.
Step Four – The meal
Here's where it all comes together for you to make mum's day… Serve up your chilled Minchinbury sparkling – if it's a hot day pop the glasses in the freezer for half an hour before serving. Then produce platters of your matched dishes for everyone to share, making sure mum gets served first!
All Minchinbury wines have their delicate flavour ensured by winemaker Tina Jarrett, who says 'I aim to delivering sparkling wines of sophistication and style, perfect for any celebrations, with Mother's Day as a perfect example."
Step Five – And chill…
Always try and save a couple of glasses of sparkles and find half an hour after everyone has left to sit back with mum and relax…
Minchinbury Crisp Classic Brut
Delicate and wonderfully delicious, the 'Crisp' Classic Brut is an exciting, racy sparkling style with a citrus backbone and brilliant length. Ideal for the celebrations with its striking packaging and vibrant flavour.
Minchinbury Blush Rosé Cuvée
As hinted at by the bottle, this is a lovely rose pink colour in the glass, followed by a bright and aromatic nose of petals and fresh strawberries. The palate is clean, crisp and vibrant on the finish.
Minchinbury Luscious Moscato
This Luscious Moscato has a subtle sweet palate with notes of musk and candied strawberries along with a vibrant finish that is soft, yet racing.
