This Month's Featured Wines
Perfect with Mediterranean Dishes!
Lagrein is an Italian red grape variety native to the valleys of South Tyrol, northern Italy. Serafino under their Bellissimo range are producing some very exciting wines along with Tempranillo, Sangiovese, Nebbiolo, Fiano and Pinot Grigio. To quote Eric Asimov, food and wine critic of the New York Times, Lagrein is typically - “... congenial, straightforward wines that can be deliciously plummy, earthy and chewy, dark and full-bodied but not heavy, with a pronounced minerally edge”.
Medium to full bodied with rich, red berry fruit, elegant oak with fine persistent tannins. This Lagrein can be enjoyed with most food styles and particularly complements Mediterranean dishes.

Championed as one of the best vintages in the past decade, the 2013 Bethany Grenache is a wine of great richness, texture and complexity. Hand- picked from old bush vines grown along the foothills of the Barossa Ranges. The nose displays aromas of fresh plums, blueberry and cherry notes. The palate is medium weight tasting of ripe cherries and raspberries balanced with hints of spice and a smooth tannin finish.It goes well with lamb roast and it is a perfect partner for a tapas platter or antipasto.

McLaren Vale winery Coriole pioneered this Italian variety in Australia first planting the Tuscan grape back in 1985, long before just about anyone else had thought of the idea. They were well ahead of fashionability curve. This is the 23rd vintage of their sangiovese, a dependably good choice to pair with Italian dishes, or roast meats. It's savoury and silky with sweet cherry aromas and nicely restrained on the palate with plenty of length, nice balance and soft tannins. - Sunday Examiner (Launceston, Tasmania)
