Old Soul Pinot Noir – USA
From the Lodi Valley of California, this Pinot has some real character. A lovely strawberry and cherry compote with delicate aromas of mushroom and cedar for complexity. The subtle tannins balance the medium-plush body perfectly.

Zuccardi Q Malbec – Argentina
A smooth and supple Malbec that’s filled with rich blackberry, black plum, a hint of black pepper and a delightful smoky finish that leaves a long-savoury finish. Full bodied with silky-soft tannins.
Pair this wine with steak fajitas, pork and hamburgers.
Château Vieux Barrail – France
Vieux Barrail is a Bordeaux Supérieur AOC indicating it’s aged 12 months before release and it’s an amazing quality for value from this region. Notes of graphite, leather, wet earth and vibrant black current all wrapped in decadent oak.
Pair this wine with beef stew, grilled-pork ribs and mushrooms.
Castorani Cadetto Monetpulciano d’Abruzzo- Italy
Lots of clean, fresh-black fruit character to this wine. Medium bodied with slightly chewy tannins but, the fruit persists through the finish. – James Suckling.

Nostalgia Red Blend – Argentina
A bold and juicy red blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Malbec, Merlot and Petit Verdot. Notes of red and black fruit with complimenting hints of cocoa and leather.

Nugan Estate McLaren Vale Shiraz – Australia
A rich and full bodied Shiraz with blackberry and bramble on the nose. The palate has gripping tannins that balance the robust fruit, wet earth, coffee beans and dark chocolate that linger on the finish.
