Smalltown Vineyards, 'Wishbone', Australia (Shiraz/Cabernet) (NEW)
Bold, juicy and generous, Wishbone has never been better, an old vine combo of Riverland Shiraz and Barossa Cabernet Sauvignon. This is a bright, bloody Shiraz from old river land vines blended with Barossa Cabernet that gives the nose a grapite, leafy lift. A South Australian classic the palate reflects the rich iron source soils with notes of ripe, fresh red cherries with a touch of star anise from the local eucalypt influence.
The Big Top, Old Vine, Lodi, California (Zinfandel) (NEW)
The grapes are selected from old vine Zinfandel vineyards in the Lodi region of central California. Aromas of vanilla, cracked black pepper and dark damson fruit. On the palate this wine is round and fleshy, beautifully balanced and packed full with robust red fruit flavours and a lick of oak.
El Infiernillo 2021, Chile (Pinot Noir) (NEW)
This cracking wine has smoky raspberry and red cherry fruit that lift effortlessly out of the glass. The palate is rich yet delicate, with a supple finish. Enjoy with or without food!
Domaine Mas Bahourat, 2022, France (Merlot) (NEW)
Deliciously ripe fruit with flavours of plums and black fruit; the tannins supple and the finish is fresh - a characterful, great value red reflecting how well the Languedoc can over-deliver on smooth, fruity reds.
Borsao Damera 2020, Spain (Garnacha)
Another cracking Garnacha from Borsao! A dark, fruity red from the region's premium producer. Aromas of ripe black fruits. The palate is soft and easy-drinking with cassis, plum, bramble and cherry characters backed by fresh acidity and supple tannins. Great with roast meat and BBQs
Cape Heights 2020, W Cape, S Africa (Pinotage)
A great example of South Africa's signature grape variety. This Pinotage is youthful, vibrant and packed with damson and dark berry fruit. The palate is rich and full flavoured with a hint of black pepper and star anise. Very moreish - a crowdpleaser.
