This Month's Featured Wines
- REGION: Marion Bay, Tasmania
VGR denotes “Variable Grams Residual” natural grape sugar, which means we stop the fermentation early to balance a higher level of residual grape sugar with the natural acidity of the wine. This wine shows a nose redolent with lime juice, floral notes and a touch of honey. The palate is exceptionally well balanced, smooth and full bodied and seamless, highlighting the Meyer Lemon fruit. Despite its luscious palate, this Riesling has a refreshing finish and is ideal with seafood and Asian style cuisine. 95 points Huon Hooke (Not available in store)Gold Medal (Top Gold) Class 16 2014 Tasmanian Wine Show,

Make no mistake, Shiraz is still king when it comes to McLaren Vale! And the 2012 vintage of The Footbolt is the perfect example of why. Laden with dark cherries, rhubarb, plums and aniseed, complemented by a lick of fine, subtle oak and lifted with a sprinkling of pepper and spice. Generosity of fruit weight, combined with balanced, chewy tannins. What makes this wine stand out in the crowd is its ability to communicate a sense of place through its ethereal, complex and provocative earthy notes. Value, drinkability and ageability. The complete package.

REGION: Relbia, Tasmania.
At it's price point Relbia's 2013 Pinot is a beautifully drinking drop! In fact, it is quite probably the states best value for money Pinot Noir at the moment. The nose is a delight, with earthy spiciness and white chalk. It's a well balanced wine, good fruit and oak complexity, which opens up nicely on the palate. The winemaker at Relbia is Ockie Myburgh - a very talented young man and one to watch in the future if this wine is anything to go by.
