Elegant fruit flavours of currant, juicy plum and dark berries complemented by notes of spicy ground black pepper with hints of herb and vanilla, make this medium-full bodied wine a delight to enjoy with grilled meats. Try it with succulent rib eye steak for a wonderful weekend treat, or barbecue burgers for an equally delicious pairing. Having an Italian night and want to switch up the wine? PETIT RUBY CABERNET is delicious with classics like meat lover’s pizza and spaghetti Bolognese.
Chardonnay Chenin Blanc
per batch
$220
Rawsonville, South Africa

Carrying distinct cultivar characteristics, tropical fruit aromas marry
with baked apple citrus zest and juicy peach. On the palate, the
buttery complexity of CHARDONNAY is complemented by
CHENIN BLANC’S tart acidity to make a beautifully balanced wine.
Delicious to sip on its own or to enjoy with food, this is a crowd-pleasing and unique addition to any cellar. Enjoy with a variety of seafood dishes like grilled shellfish or salmon fish cakes. If feeling decadent, try chicken poached in a butter sauce, as the wine’s bright acidity and fruity character will complement the richness of the sauce wonderfully.
Merlot
per batch
$235
Hawke's Bay, New Zealand
Available February 2018
Ripe fruit with spice and soft tannins take precedence in this MERLOT.
The lingering finish brings dark oaky spice, as well as hints of mocha
and licorice. Treat yourself and enjoy with slow-cooked beef and lamb
dishes or a gorgeous Ossobuco. Roasted, slightly caramelized
tomatoes on crostini drizzled with balsamic reduction is a simple
starter that is impeccable with this wine. Looking for a cheese to
pair? Try Gouda or smoked cheddar.
Milagro Blanco
per batch
$220
La Mancha, Spain
Available March 2018
La Mancha is steeped in history and is believed to have been producing wine since the Roman empire. A challenging place to grow grapes, the region is found in hot and dry central Spain, south east of Madrid where the rivers provide much needed water. Hard working vines planted in water-absorbing limestone and chalk sub-soil produce grapes that boast concentrated flavours that burst on the palate. The fruity and floral character of this white wine pairs exquisitely with moderately spiced Szechuan, Thai and Vietnamese dishes. Lighter meats like chicken and white fish with green salad dressed in light vinaigrette are natural matches for a fresh, tantalizing meal.
Negroamaro
per batch
$235
Apulia, Italy
Available April 2018
NEGROAMARO is richly jewel-hued, full bodied and a classic varietal in Apulia. Mild hints of wood and spice on the nose play with fruity notes for a complex aroma. On the palate, ripe berry is complemented by ground baking spice and silky tannins with a long finish. NEGROAMARO is hearty, versatile and evokes feelings of the beauty of its home. This wine couples well with many cuisines, but Italian, of course, is a flawless pairing. Choose an antipasto with spicy elements like salami or pepper marinated vegetables like eggplant. A simple but delicious peperonata can be enjoyed with crusty bread or as a side to roasted and grilled meat.
