Pinot Noir Shiraz
Murray Darling, Australia
Pinot Noir and Shiraz may seem like an off couple, but this uniquely Australian blend has a noble history and is currently making a major resurgence. Mixed berry, floral and soft spice aromas open to a vibrant palate of sour cherry and red fruit flavours with undertones of dark plum, blueberry, light licorice and spice. Silky tannins and bright acidity complete this juicy and engergetic blend.
Macabeo Sauvignon Blanc
Macabeo and Sauvignon Blanc are perfect partners in this bright and balanced blend. Together they show aromas of citrus and tropical fruit, with soft white blossom. The palate is lush and layered with pronounced flavours of green apple, pear, grapefruit and tropical fruid, with light notes of honeysuckle and grass. Fresh and flavourful with lively acidity, elegant complexity, and medium persistence.
A cross between Cabernet Sauvignon and Grenache, this relatively young French varietal displays the best characteristics of both parents. Marselan is deeply coloured with a powerful nose of jammy red and black fruits and spice. The palate delivers rich ripe fruit flavours of blackberry, plum and black currant with spicy notes, balanced acidity, and well-rounded tannins. Supple smooth, and seductive.
Puglia & Veneto, Italy
Lemon peel, melon, and green apple on the nose with a light chamomile undertone. The palate offers orchard fruit flavours of yellow apple and white peach fused with melon, citrus, and fresh minerality. This inviting blend showcases the high natural acidity of both Trebbiano and Riesling; it’s fun, fresh, and fruity with a touch of sweetness and a lot of pizzazz.
With Grape Skins
Grenache Carignan – Garnacha Carinena in Spanish – is at once intense and harmonious. Deep ruby red with alluring aromas of blackberry, spice, and leather nuances. A provocative palate of black fruit, cherry, red berry and plum with a well-integrated oak and accents of licorice and spice. Rich velvety tannins, moderate acidity, and a long savoury finish.
