GREYLANDS RIDGE BLANC DE NOIR 2012, $22

Made purely from Alexandra pinot noir juice that's been separated from its skins, this juicy, refreshing white wine bursts with tropical fruit, nectarine and luscious lemon flavours. With a smidge of creamy richness it has real personality and punch that's perfect with seafood.

CRABBIE'S ORIGINAL ALCOHOLIC GINGER BEER 500ml, $5.49


No matter if you're an expat Brit or just nostalgic about your OE, you'll be happy to know that one of the Britain's best-loved gingerbeers is finally available Downunder.

Created from four secret ingredients (actually three, because one has to be ginger) there's a lovely Easter, oriental twist to this clean, fruity 4 per cent gingerbeer and it's perfect poured over loads of ice with a slice of lime, lemon or peach. Available only from Liquorland.

CATALINA SOUNDS MARLBOROUGH PINOT GRIS 2012, $25

This is my kind of pinot gris, deliciously dry with a whiff of wet stones and spice, it's clean, lean and layered with a kind of creamy complexity that lingers on the palate. Enjoy with a heaving plate of clams steamed in garlic, lemon and cream then tossed with chopped bacon into some fresh pasta - amazing.
