Prosecco

Italy (11% abv)

This classically styled bottle of bubbly is made exclusively from the Glera grape from Italy’s Veneto region. It’s lively, dry and fresh with invigorating bubbles and a clean finish, making it perfect for any special occasion. Vibrant pear and apple tantalize the palate alongside a citrus twang that reverberates endlessly. It’s an absolutely food-friendly wine, and a great libation for celebration! 

Amarone della Valpolicella

Italy (15% abv)

Notable wines have been produced in the Italian region of Valpolicella since antiquity, and this wine is no different. This full-bodied red wine features a complex bouquet of cinnamon, cherry jam and walnut with a palate of ripe black cherry and notes of vanilla and coffee on the finish. It pairs with rich pasta dishes, game and grilled or stewed red meats.

Chianti

Italy (12.5% abv)

Since its creation in the mid-nineteenth century, the Tuscan red blend we know as Chianti was notably sold in stout bottles wrapped in straw. Bottling practices have changed, but the wine remains celebrated today. It is ruby red with flavours of cherry, plum and spice on the palate, with velvety soft tannins and a long finish. Best served with pasta, roasted chicken and medium-aged cheeses. 

Pinot Grigio

Italy (12% abv)

Wine snobs give Pinot Grigio a hard time, blaming its simplicity for their dislike of it. We feel this is one of its most prized qualities, making it both widely approachable and enjoyable. This particular bottle’s bouquet offers rich aromas of tropical fruit followed by delicate floral notes. It’s the perfect glass of wine for a hot summer day. Serve it chilled with appetizers, seafood or chicken.

Chardonnay-Torrontes

Argentina (13% abv)

This Argentinian blend is actually a combination of world-famous Chardonnay and uniquely Argentinian Torrontes grapes. It has a fruity, aromatic and refreshing style. It shows a yellow colour with green hues, with pear and tropical fruit aromas in the mouth. Its crispness displays an outstanding freshness and intense taste, ideally paired with seafood pasta with soft sauces and grilled chicken. 

Malbec

Argentina (13% abv)

This Argentinian Malbec varietal is round, smooth and full-flavoured. It has a purplish-red color and spicy aromas, balanced with smooth tannins. Rich plums and cherries can be found in its delicate flavours. Pair it with grilled meat, chicken and pasta for a meal sure to please.

Shiraz

Australia (14% abv)

This is a lovely, medium-bodied Australian shiraz. Appealing flavours of ripe berry fruit, spice and black pepper dance with supple tannins and a long, smooth finish. Enjoy with a wide range of dishes including red meat, poultry and pasta.

Sauvignon Blanc

New Zealand (12.5% abv)

Sauvignon Blanc comes from the French sauvage (wild) and blanc (white) because of how the grape grows, but with one sip, you’ll think it refers to the flavour. Vibrant aromas of passionfruit and lime zest lead to mouth wateringly crisp flavours of tropical fruit, green apples and bursts of lemon. It accompanies seafood and chicken dishes extremely well.

Chardonnay

Australia (13.5% abv)

While Chardonnay historically originates in France’s Burgundy region, it is now grown everywhere wine is. This great Australian chardonnay is no slouch, boasting a fresh, fruit-driven style and appealing fresh flavours of melon, peach and tropical fruit with a lovely crisp, dry finish. Enjoy it with a wide range of dishes including seafood, poultry, white meat and pasta.
