I love these two wines from winemaker Nadia, find out more about her here.
2 x False Bay Chenin Blanc 13.5% ABV – 75cl
Ripe apple aromas, honeyed aromatics, greengage and citrus lemon acidity on the long finish. Wine with great finesse and style. Perfect match with a variety of summer dishes or enjoy on its own after a hard day’s work or play!
2 x False Bay Pinotage 14.5% ABV – 75cl
The grape pinotage created in South African is their signature variety. Full bodied with a heady mix of berry fruit, rich chocolate and plums supported by soft tannins. Great wine with roast meats.
2 x Old Station Malbec 13.5% ABV – 75cl
You can’t think of Argentina without smiling at the thought of malbec! A rich bodied style of malbec full of rich fruit. Blackberrys, plums with a touch of spice. Great for roast meats and bbq foods.
1 x Mesa Trinas Torrontes 12.5% ABV – 75cl
Torrontes is a lovely grape from Argentina but not so well known. It gives really fresh aromatics with peach, orange blossom, green pears with a lovely citrus lift at the finish. Hopefully a realy treat, pairs nicely with light spiced foods.
1 x Growers Touch Durif 14% ABV – 75cl
The durif grape also known as petite sirah does stunningly well in Australia. The label on this wines shows the grapes grown in the earth and the hands creating it in to wine. This durif grape gives deep mulberry and blueberry fruits with spice and a touch of vanilla from the oak used.
2 x Snapper Rock Sauvignon Blanc 13% ABV – 75cl
The grape sauvignon blanc put the Marlborough region on the map, this is a producer we have worked with even before the shop opened. Find out more about our friend James who creates the Snapper Rock range here. Excellent wine with huge flavour, super citrussy with lemon and grapefruit, fresh, light, crisp and very drinkable!
1 x 770 Miles Zinfandel 14% ABV – 75cl
This grape can have a bit of bad press due to the off dry rose it creates however, the off dry rose can be very versatile with spicy foods or a bowl of strawberries and cream! This is the full red version of zinfandel and always takes people by surprise! Packed full of scrumptious fruit deep damsons, black cherries and red fruit with a sprinkling of black pepper.
1 x Tinamou Carmenere 13% ABV – 75cl
Another South American gem that you have to explore, the carmenere grape originally from Bordeaux. Notes of black cherry, blackcurrant and black pepper on the nose leads to an elegant palate with integrated tannins and a fresh fruit finish. Enjoy with chargrilled red meats or roasts.
