Yellowtail™ is an Australian wine that is popular all over the world. These wines are typically smooth and juicy, which means that some of them go well with chasers.
Yellowtail represents its country of origin by featuring a yellow-footed rock wallaby on its bottles, which is how most people recognize the brand. The next time you buy a bottle, consider trying one of the following chasers to spice things up a bit.
Merlot and Water
Yellowtail merlot is an oaky red wine that is complex and bold. It consists of an exquisite bouquet of:
- Dark plums
The main problem with red wine is that, even though it is lush and delectable, it has been known to cause headaches. Robin, a full-time bartender at Capital Grille, says that “you can combat headaches” by drinking water.
Water is a good chaser for red wine because it helps prevent dehydration caused by the alcohol, and the tannins in the wine can trigger what is known as a “red wine headache.” Water helps immensely with this.
Chardonnay and Club Soda
This savory white wine with a colorful taste is easy to drink. Some of the notes:
Club soda is the perfect ally to have with your white wine. Club soda combined with wine works well as a summer drink because it beautifully matches the citrusy notes in the chardonnay.
Club soda also contains minerals that give it its famous salty kick. The bubbles in the club soda complement the white wine taste, like a spritzer.
Pinot Noir and Apple Juice
Yellowtail pinot noir red wine is quite remarkable, as it has a beautiful and enticing blend of:
The finish is very bright, light, and juicy. It has a fresh taste that is as smooth as silk. The berries and cherries give this wine a fun and fruity taste without being sickly sweet like some other types of wine, which is why apple juice gives it a natural boost that is not overpowering.
Pinot Noir chased with apple juice tastes like Sangria, especially if you add a few orange slices or fresh berries to the mix. It makes the juicy fruitiness of Pinot Noir stand out, and the apple juice by itself is refreshing and thirst-quenching.
Rosé and Lemonade
Yellowtail rose is delightful on the palate and produces a fruit-infused finish. It has a lovely taste which includes:
- White peach
- Red cherries
- Honeydew melon
- Rose petals
There is something about rosé that is just perfection. It is light, elegant, and a charming addition to any summer soirée. This combination of fruits makes lemonade the right chaser to go with a yellowtail rosé. It combines tart and sweet, which is ideal for the warmer months.
The lemon in the drink goes well with this light, delicate rosé and even works when drinking during the day. When you chase rosé with a few sips of lemonade, you will be instantly transported to a beautiful sunny beach.
Prosecco and Grapefruit Juice
There is nothing more enthralling than a glass of bubbly prosecco. Yellowtail prosecco has very distinct and delicious flavors:
Grapefruit juice is the perfect complement to prosecco because it is super light and refreshing. The citrus and pear notes go exceptionally well with the grapefruit juice. Grapefruit is packed with vitamin C and is good for your health, which is something to raise a glass to.
The bubbles in the prosecco are quite appealing with the grapefruit flavor. When chasing a glass of prosecco, grapefruit juice balances the sweet and the bitter to perfection.
Pinot Grigio and White Cranberry Peach Juice
This pinot grigio is quite lovely, as it is a bit on the drier side of the typical white wine pinot, which makes it more appealing:
- Pineapple rind
- Green apple
Pinot grigio chased with this delicious juice is hard to beat. It is simply a mouthful of goodness and easy to handle. The pinot is flavorful enough, but the white peach cranberry juice brings it over the top.
Of course, the fruit flavors are a burst of refreshment. The result is not too sugary or syrupy sweet, but just the right balance of yummy. Try this tempting combination at a party, and you will make everyone happy.
Moscato and Pineapple Juice
This floral white wine is for those who prefer it sweet. It is a good and approachable wine:
The wine’s fun, fruity tropical flavors perfectly blend with the pineapple juice. The wine is a good dessert wine if you are into the sweeter varieties. There is a light fizz to the wine that makes it great for social drinking.
The pineapple juice gives the wine a good lift and takes you away to an island paradise. You could make your Moscato a tropical sangria, add slices of fruit, and chase it with pineapple juice.
The above chasers mentioned are great if you want to try something new. You may not think that wine requires a chaser, but in the case of Yellowtail wines, it just makes things more interesting.
