A stunning dozen of warming winter reds and whites to help you through the last of the cooler weather. In whites, you’ve a luscious Chardonnay, silky Pinot Gris, a full-flavoured Angove SSB, a dazzling Eden Valley Riesling and more. In reds, enjoy dark, decadent Cabernet, a tasty Tempranillo treat, an exciting Sangiovese, a luscious Langhorne Creek Shiraz and a superb 92pt Kangaroo Island Shiraz Cabernet. These are terrific!
‘Temprana’ is the Spanish word for early - rather fitting for a grape that ripens a little bit earlier than most. Its thick skin lends it a bright and vibrant red colour that matches the abundant red fruit which explodes from the glass, just as you’ll find in this wonderful example. Tempranillo lends itself to food matching so well as it is so very versatile. Just because this is an Aussie doesn’t mean you can’t show off a little Spanish flair in the kitchen… Try your hand at a tasty tapas selection to share or perhaps a deliciously spicy pulled-pork burrito. Now you’re salivating.
A beautiful Traminer style, gorgeously aromatic with those famous, signature lychees and rosewater notes on a crisp, refreshing and gently fruity palate. Sip while you watch the sun set or serve with your favourite spicy cuisine. This is delicious!
Sangiovese, an Italian red wine grape variety, derives its name from the Latin word ‘sanguis Jovis’, that refers to “the blood of Jove”. In Australia, some regions in Victoria are considered to be some of the best for growing Sangiovese – as you'll taste in this sensational drop. The wine shows savoury, dark cherry flavours and earthy characters with fine tannins and cleansing acidity. It's a fantastic food wine – pizza & pasta at the ready!
The move into grape-growing, back in 1984, was a “delicious diversion” for Helen and Dr. Jim Watts. The rich, black clay soils were soon abundant with some of the best quality wine grapes in the Vale. Now they make some of the best wine in the Vale too.
It’s not everyday you go shopping for groceries and come across vineyards for sale, especially when you happen to be on a trip to Kangaroo Island. For owner of Battle of Bosworth Wines, Joch Bosworth, opportunity called out and he answered. As you’d expect from this southern island paradise, the cool maritime breezes encourage elegant, medium-bodied reds. <br><br> <i>“Good colour; a youthful medium-bodied wine with good balance and length. Black fruits rule the roost until the gently savoury finish and aftertaste... 92pts” </i> (Halliday Wine Companion, James Halliday). To 2030.
The Limestone Coast was under the sea for over 25 million years. Fast-forward one million years, the region rose out of the sea and fossils helped form the prized red soils (‘terra rossa’) for which the Limestone Coast is famous. Enjoy beautiful pear and mineral flavours on a textured, palate, with a green apple crispness to finish.
Currency Creek might not be familiar right now, but this micro region just south of Adelaide is well versed in producing some utterly stunning whites and reds - as evidenced by this classy Chardonnay. Laden with wall to wall fruit, pair this with anything from seafood to chicken, salads or barbecued fare, or spicy Asian cuisine. It’s even just as delicious on its own.
This Cabernet is made by the Guglielmino family, who’ve been making spectacular wines since 1997. The family are passionate about displaying their Italian heritage in their selection of wine styles. Dark and deeply delicious, full of blackberry, plum, blackcurrant and a touch of French oak. It has moreish tannins and is best enjoyed with food. We suggest some braised beef ribs, garlic chicken wings or gorgonzola pizza!
The demand for quality organic reds has never been stronger and Salena Estate has been one of the largest Australian producers of organic wines since 2009. A rich, mouth-filling Cabernet that thrives in Salena Estate's organic vineyards, offering a pleasant expression of blackberry, cassis and fine tannins.
With 130 years of expertise under the family's belt Angove have plenty of experience to call upon. During that time they have been awarded 'Winery of the Year' and many medals besides for individual wines. Fourth generation John Angove now heads up the cellar that Dr William Angove started in 1886 near Adelaide (by making award winning brandy – a product they're still famous for) and, besides championing unusual grapes, John also pioneers modern styles of wine. This one is simply delicious. Enjoy!
Enjoy a satisfying nose of fresh blackberries, leather, cherry, cinnamon spice that leads forth to an array of dark fruited tones, clove and a hint of florals. There’s so much to love about this wine. It’s structured and well toned, fruity without being overwhelming, yet shows lovely, subtle savoury characters, too!
