This Month's Featured Wines
- CLEARANCE!Was $26.50 Now $9.95An opportunity to purchase a back vintage wine from our stocks. This Sauvignon Blanc Semillon from Crawford River has developed in the bottle over time and now shows honeyed, melon and ripe tropical fruit flavours. There is a rich texture rather than the natural fruit acidity on the palate. Drink now. Very Limited Stocks!!Fresh honeydew melon melds with hints of grassiness and flinty minerality to form a delicate, aromatic bouquet. The soft and generous palate with its fine backbone of Semillon, reflects and magnifies these characters whilst the wine's time spent on lees adds another layer to this subtly textured, harmonious wine. The finish is dry and chalky, clean and zesty. Structured and elegant, the fruit quality of both components of this lively blend reveals the rewards of our careful management of crop levels during the growing season. Winemakers notes.

- REGION: Coal River Valley, Tasmania.
PRESSING Matters make gorgeous Rieslings that all have the letter R on the label, which stands for residual sugar (or maybe ripper?) so this RO means there’s zitch, thus it’s very dry. There’s also the stunning R9 (nine grams of residual sugar), which is still dry but has more texture, and the sweetish R69 and R139. RO has citrus tang, and snappy yet chalky acidity that will mellow over time. Citrus Blossom fragrance, spice and lime juice add freshness on the palate with a long finish. An austere style thats good with fried shrimp and garlicky aioli. The Age Epicure.

Colour Red with bright purple hues. Aroma intense lifted nose of red cherries and wild forest fruit with hints of toasted oak and spice. Palate lifted bright, sweet wild berries and sour cherries with hints of cardamom and clove. The palate is finely structured with silky tannins and rich dark chocolate that leads to a long focused finish. Restrained oak is well integrated and provides support for the bright primary fruit.
