Stonewall Pinot Noir 2017
Marlborough, New Zealand 13% abv
New Zealand's Marlborough region has made its name with
Sauvignon Blanc, but winemaker John Forrest is proving it excels
with Pinot Noir, too. His Stonewall is silky with bright, ripe
berry fruit, while old vines give it real depth and richness. This
is a great red to enjoy with chicken or mushroom
Stellenrust Heritage Shiraz 2018
Stellenbosch, South Africa 14.5% abv
Founded in 1928, Stellenrust is one of the most important family
wineries in South Africa. Heritage Collection Shiraz is the
estate's rich, flavour packed interpretation of this Rhône Valley
favourite. Using special yeast imported from the Rhône Valley for
fermentation and aged in oak barrels for a year to gain just enough
smoothness and complexity. This dense red is a cracker with lamb or
Vin de l'Union Européene 14% abv
Our newest, most daring BIG red to date that breaks every rule.
Its quest is simply to get the lushest, most velvety, big on fruit
wine in your glass and it succeeds amply by combining France's
Malbec with Cabernet and Syrah from Spain's Navarra. Enjoy it
however you like - on its own, with warming casseroles, roast
meats. Take your pick!
Très Cantou 2018
Gaillac Perlé, France 12% abv
If you like Muscadet, Vinho Verde or Picpoul de Pinet, you're
going to adore Gaillac Perlé. It's mouthwateringly crisp, bursting
with refreshing citrus, and lifted even further by a delicate,
natural spritz. The perfect drinks party aperitif.
