By  |  2 Comments

Make this Sunday 18th  March a day your mother will remember. Prepare her breakfast, let her put her feet up and give her the weekend off. To help you say celebrate and say thank you to her, we at Simply Woman have compiled a selection of white, rose and juicy red wines for you to choose from. Our choices come from quality winemakers from around the globe, and include ‘newbie’ merchants.

Here are our recommendations.

Nottage Hill Chardonnay 2011, 13% abv

A full bodied dry wine with tropical and melon flavours. We found a lingering overtone of mild oak on the tongue. Highly drinkable on its own, but why not accompany it with a white meats dish this Sunday? Retails at around £7.99 from main supermarkets 

Hardys Crest Brut Rose, 11.5% abv

This is a pale strawberry coloured sparkling wine made from both red and white grapes. The wine boasts a bouquet of crisp red fruit, and is an easy drinking number. Best described as medium sweet, this is a perfect accompaniment for a girly chat between just you and your mum! Retails at around £13.99 from main supermarkets 



This is a Chilean wine, promising a rich experience with a hint of spice. Described as smooth, mellow and fruity. Top notes of blackcurrant fade into a hint of mint. Will perfectly accompany a roast red meat dish such as lamb. Retails at around £7.99 from main supermarkets


Both Hardys and Nottage Hill are famous Australian brands managed in the UK by the Accolade Wines Group.
