Gorgeous Gibbston Valley Guest Wines on the Menu... along with Egg Nog?

Check out the tasting notes for the gorgeous Gibbston Valley guest wines have on the menu at Atlas, just for Christmas period.

First up, the Gold River Methode Traditionelle Brut, because what's more celebratory than bubbles? The Gold River Brut is a light, straw gold colour with a fine and delicate mousse. Taste-wise there are creamy toasty notes on the nose with some subtle brioche, straw and barrel aromatics. A full creamy palate follows with its savoury breadth complementing a hint of flintiness. The finish is long, dry and generous. Delicious.

Next our guest Rose is the Gibbston Valley 2014. Gibbston Valley have a vineyard designated specifically for Rose production. By picking specifically from this one site, certain aromatic and fresh fruit flavours are harnessed. The wine is 100% Pinot Noir and is full of berry characteristics. It is also dry and and refreshing and has a slightly lower alcohol content. The Rose is also very food friendly and can be enjoyed with a variety of different cuisines. We think it'll make for perfect lake-side drinking. 

Gibbston Valley Gold Valley Brut | Bottle $55

Gibbston Valley Rose 2014  | Glass $9.5 Bottle $40

Along with these two fantastic guest wines we may just have another guest drink on the menu. That most festive drink of all. . . Yes that's right, Egg Nog! Stay tuned and we'll keep you updated on the Egg Nog status. 

As always, please enjoy responsibly
