Morgan Bay Chardonnay  California USA

Tasting Notes: A delightful white wine that captivates with its elegant and refreshing character. With its origins rooted in the renowned Rutherford Ranch vineyards, this Chardonnay showcases the best of what the varietal has to offer. Well balanced and fruit forward, with luscious flavours of ripe pear and golden apple dancing on the tongue. These flavours are complemented by subtle notes of vanilla and buttery oak, adding depth and complexity to the wine.

Price: $18.99

Old Soul Petit Syrah 2020  California

Tasting Notes: I love Petit Sirahs from California and this one does not disappoint. Opaque and purplish, with aromas of juicy blackberries and toasted s'mores. Grilled plums and vanilla and oak round out this well structured wine. Great with late summer BBQ's or into the fall with grilled or roasted meats and vegetables, cheeses etc.

Price: $21.99

Garzon Albarino Reserva 2021  Uruguay

Tasting Notes: This Albariño is of a pale yellow colour with greenish reflections and fruity aromas of peach and balanced with citrus notes. It is fresh and minerally with a marked acidity and a long and rounded aftertaste in mouth. Its ripening time takes place between 3 to 6 months on fine lees in stainless-steel tanks. A perfect wine for summer on a patio, with fresh seafood, salads.

Price: $26.99

Creation Rose  South Africa

Tasting Notes: 50% Grenache Noir & 50% Syrah, hailing from Walker Bay, South Africa. This is delicate petticoat-pink, translucent and tempting in the glass. Exquisitely perfumed with the come-hither bouquet of a Madame Meilland rose, blending with the freshness of sun-kissed berries. Profoundly chic yet playful on the palate: lush ripe raspberry laced with evocative hints of dried apple; racy white pepper flirting with the tiniest scoop of honey. All enlivened by the crisp acidity and savoury minerality characteristic of this cool-climate, maritime wine. Regularly $30 now on sale at $17.99 - an absolute must have this summer!

Price: $17.99

Yalumba Old Bush Vine Grenache  Australia

Tasting Notes: A beautiful depiction of The Grenache grape from Barossa Valley! This is light- bodied, highly aromatic, yet earthy and herbal with bright, sunny cherries! Richly textured and juicy. Great with game meats, like duck, or charcuterie, or even Jambalaya.

Price: $25.99

Serol Melting Potes  France

Tasting Notes: What a surprise and magical blend of grapes! From The Cote Roannaise which is part of the Loire Valley, it is a delicious blend of Gamay, Syrah and Grenache. Loaded with dark fruit and layers of savory herbal notes. It’s juicy, but not heavy. This light-to-medium-bodied red is superb with a slight chill, or also delicious when served from the cellar. It's a knock out with charcuterie. An unusual and not readily available wine. Would make an excellent Valentine's Day selection!

Price: $29.99

Chris Ringland Reservation Shiraz  Australia

Tasting Notes: From a legendary Barossa winemaker, this Aussie Shiraz is truly next level. It has an abundant flavour of sweet blackberry, dark chocolate and old fruitcake. Reservation is composed from premium Shiraz batches that have been deliberately held back, to enhance their maturation complexity. This is a classic Northern Barossa Shiraz. Great with BBQ meats, winter stews.

Price: $40.99
