White Wine

Ironstone Chardonnay 2018, Lodi, California, United States: Love this classic California Chardonnay from the Lodi wine region. Buttery with tropical fruit and ripe stone-fruit flavours on the palate. Some Viognier and Chenin Blanc have been added to the blend giving the wine a honeyed apricot perfume and balanced acidity. The blended wine aged five months in new French oak barrels. Pair with grilled pork chops. Chardonnay food pairings: pasta, shellfish, chicken breast, barbecued pork.

Red Wine

Zonte's Footstep Blackberry Patch Cabernet Sauvignon 2017, Fleurieu Peninsula, South Australia, Australia: The wine is named for King Arthur's legend: whomever could pull the sword Excalibur from the stone under the Avalon Tree, would rule as king. Also named for Australia's great gumtrees. A rich and juicy red wine blend of 95% Cabernet Sauvignon with the balance in Tempranillo. Vibrant with bright cassis, savoury herbs and dark spice flavours on the palate. Pair with roast boar. Cabernet Sauvignon food pairings: are roast beef, grilled T-bone steak, grilled sausages on the barbeque.
