2015 Terra D’Alter Alicante Bouschet
Alentejo, Portugal
Terras d'Alter is in the Alto Alentejo region in the south of Portugal, where the history of wine growing dates back to Roman times.
This extensive history, and a focus which remains largely on native Portuguese varietals,
is combined with the New World expertise of dynamic & enterprising winemaker Peter Bright, an Australian making wine in Portugal since 1982.
This dark and intense red is marked by plums and prunes, silky and rich tannins, and a long chocolate and vanilla finish.

2017 Los Haroldos Estate Blend

Stellenbosch, South Africa
Tasting Notes
Displays aromas of black current, dark plum, red berries, light lead pencil whiffs
and hints of pepper. The dense layer of pure and complex fruit, with subtle cedar undertones,
is held together by a firm and well balanced acidity. 
On the palate the wine exhibits a great balance of ripe fruit character
with an elegant structured and silky finish
 Food Pairing
Ideal to serve with grilled meats.

Colchagua Valley, Chile

Vino de Eyzaguirre Cabernet Sauvignon, 2016.

On the nose fragrant persistent, intense with clear scents of vanilla and mountain berries. 
On the palate harmonic, full bodied, intense with a persistent pleasant taste.
Goes well with pasta dishes in red sauce, red meat dishes, game and aged cheese.

2018 Domaine Bousquet Malbec
Mendoza, Argentina
Malbec
Black fruit aromas are bold and friendly, but simple in a good way, meaning the nose is open and uncomplicated.
A dense, chewy palate is ripe and full,
while this Malbec tastes entirely of black fruits with a full finish

2017 Schild Unoaked Chardonnay
Baraossa, Australia

Winemakers Notes
Pale straw with green tinges match fragrant aromas of subtle lemon/lime citrus
which show early alongside tempting glimpses of white peach, nectarine and s slight hint of  mineral bath salts. 
The familiar citrus notes evident on the nose feature upfront on the palate too. 
Here they are supported by some varietal “nuttiness” fruit weight and mid palate texture
derived from lees stirring.  A clear line of travel leads into a focused mineral finish
ensuring the wine ends balanced and provides some genuine interest to the drinker.
Pair with chicken and mushroom risotto.

Classique Luberon 2017
Luberon, Southern Rhone, France
60% Grenache noir, 40% Syrah
Luminous and steady pink robe with purple reflections. 
Subtle flavours of grapefruit, rose and cherry Morello emerge in the nose and on the palate. 
The wine is vivid and fresh with a beautiful roundness which gives balance. 
2018 Don Rodolfo Tannat
Cuyo, Argentina
Tannat
The soils of Lujan de Cuyo are composed predominantly of loose sand over clay and rock
which provide excellent free-draining qualities allowing our vines to be stressed.
With natural irrigation from the pure water source of the snow melt of the Andes Mountains,
our vines produce premium red wines with rich colour, full body and true varietal character.
Tannat is a great match with any type of strong cheese such as Burrata,
or grilled meat dish with bold sauce.

2017 Clos La Coutale
Cahors, France
80% Malbec, 20% Merlot

This deep garnet stunner, predominantly Malbec with a touch of Merlot,
has both elegance and rusticity, juicy ripe fruit and earthy aromas,
and bears a velvety finish that will only soften with time.
