This is an incredible-value Carménère, so make sure to pick up a few bottles! Cassis, plum, vanilla, cocoa and mint are all in play. Lengthy with a fruit-driven personality and suave tannins. Perfect for red sauce dishes!
Rosé gets a bad rap because of White Zinfandel, but good dry rosés are delicious and default food wines. Made from Cabernet Franc, Gamay and Pinot Noir grapes, this wine is full and juicy with aromas and flavours of raspberry, cranberry and cherry with hints of spice, earth and fresh herbs, medium structure and a long, fresh finish. Anyone who thinks rosés aren’t delicious and versatile wines will be converted with just one taste.
A stylish wine made from Sicily’s signature red grape showing intriguing spicy character, succulent ripe berry fruit, well-balanced acidity and a lick of milk chocolate.
Musqué is an aromatic clone of Chardonnay that gives the wine a floral top note. This wine is light straw in colour with a nose of apples and apple blossom; dry and medium-bodied, it's surprisingly light on the palate for its 13.6% alcohol.
La Kiuva is a tiny co-op in the Aosta Valley and Arnad is a small village in the DOC. This day-glo coho salmon-hued rosé is a blend of Nebbiolo, Gros Vien and Neyret from 380 to 500 m and sandy soils. After a 12-hour maceration, this saignée method rosé completes fermentation before 6 months in stainless steel tank and a 2 month stint in the bottle before release. Gushes of watery and youthful raspberry, strawberry, red currant on a medium, bright palate, ending with an appropriately bitter, salty rasp. Cured meats, salty alpine cheeses, lardon-laced salads would welcome this wine. Not overly complex, nor does it need or pretend to be. It's ideal just as it is.
From 50 year old vines planted on now Golden Mile Bench, a classic varietal nose yields vibrant, perfumed floral and rose petal notes before a lush but well-structured palate of rosé petal, quince and spice with lingering ginger and spice notes through the close.
