Predisposed to flourish in cool climates, Sauvignon Blanc is vividly aromatic, crisp and elegant. Grassy tones and gooseberry blend with its mouth watering acidity. Spicy pear and white pepper invigorate the palate then transition to a savoury lemon zest.

Robust, but also possessing much subtle appeal, this blend strikes a perfect balance between its velvet tannin and ripe fruit aspect, which includes currant and black cherry. A charming black pepper spice brings this wine to its lengthy conclusion.

Expect aromas of ripe red berry fruit, currants and spice from this strapping, ruby red wine. Rich and well balanced, this exquisite Merlot enjoys a velvety tannic structure, a wealth of complex flavours to engage the palate, and an enduring finish that finds the fruit aspect and spicy oak qualities in perfect harmony.

Mild smoke, black cherry and pepper find their way to the nose and palate of this medium bodied Shiraz. Its well integrated tannin and lively mouth feel provide dimension against sweeter red fruit and vanilla flavours.

This noble varietal ripens early and features a slight, rosy hue from brief contact with the grape skins. Aromas include floral notes, tropical fruit, and a honeysuckle sweetness. An oily texture coats the palate and stages the play between the wine's refreshing acid and tangy fruit structure.
