Au Bon Climat Pinot Noir 2018$85.00Add to cart
Drawn from Bien Nacido and Clendenen Family vineyards, this wine's smoky black-cherry fruit gets richer with air, lingering on a scent of mulled berries. The flavors remain smoky and dark, with a concentrated but elegant savor, quiet and refined structured for a long cellar life
Cullen Red Moon 2017$65.00Add to cart
57% Malbec, 37% Petit Verdot and 6% Merlot from the Mangan vineyard. Medium red with ruby tinges. Plum, Cherries with lifted floral notes on the nose. Medium bodied with dark cherries, blueberries and savoury notes on the finish. Cellar with confidence for at least 10 years.
Tyrell’s ‘Old Winery’ Pinot Noir 2019$60.00Add to cart
Light ruby in the glass. Some herbaceousness hits at first, but more cherry, raspberry and plum swim to the surface. Tightly-knit on the palate with pronounced dark berry flavours, a lot of spicy bitterness, a little leather and the slightest hint of savoury old oak flavours. An explosion of acidity and just a brush of tannins. Definitely a no-nonsense Pinot Noir, in dire need of hearty food.
Heartland Shiraz 2018$70.00Add to cart
A purple rim encompasses a core of deep ruby. The aromas are surprisingly dominated by red rather than black fruits and hints of spice. The blackberry fruit of the palate is accompanied by a playlist of spices, with cinnamon and liquorice on high rotation.
Joel Gott ‘815’ Cabernet Sauvignon 2017$85.00Add to cart
Sourced from vineyards in Napa, Sonoma, Mendocino and Lodi, Joel Gott is making classic Cabernets with rich aromas of blackberry, black currant and mocha. The wine is built on a solid frame, well-balanced and round on the finish.
Ridge ‘Lytton Springs’ Zinfandel 2017$88.00Add to cart
The 2017 Zinfandel East Bench is an absolute joy to taste. Bright acids perk up the sweet red berry fruit in this lively, flavourful 100% Zinfandel from vineyards in Dry Creek. Fresh, vinous and so wonderfully inviting, the 2017 is delicious now, but also has the energy to develop in bottle for another decade, perhaps more.
Amato Vino Bianco 2020$65.00Add to cart
A lovely blend of Chenin Blanc and Verdelho. Aromatic, crunchy, super refreshing. A wine to drink straight from the bottle on the beach, no glasses needed.
Charles Smith ‘Kung fu Girl’ Riesling$65.00Add to cart
Youthful, almost soft nose - pear drop, passionfruit, hay and hints of asparagus. The mouthfeel excites on the first contact, offering spectacular richness and roundness, but simultaneously remaining light as a feather. Acid is not tart or green like you get in your textbook Sauvignon, but very mellow and balanced with the low abv. Gentle minerality on the finish. An easily approachable crowd-pleaser for those in want of an aromatic, crisp white wine that's a tad different.
Jordan Chardonnay 2019$105.00Add to cart
Pale lemon in the glass. Solid aromatics with lots going on - green apple, pear, citrus peels, pineapple and hints of baking spices. Lean and crisp in the mouth, kinda Chablisesque in style. Give this a bit of time in the decanter and you shall be rewarded.
Tomfoolery Trouble & Strife 2020$55.00Add to cart
Light salmon pink in the glass. Pleasant, sort of sweet aromatics - cranberry, candied cherry, raspberry. Very fruit-driven on the palate as well. Simple, refreshing, light. Alcohol is much lighter compared to the 2019 vintage, giving way to a lot more acidity. Great wine, works well at the price.
