⇐ 2019 Balgownie Estate Nouveau Syrah
A light and delicate shiraz that has aromas of raspberries, cherries, and juicy plums. The shiraz fruit has provided balance and structure to produce a perfumed wine that is delectable – the perfect accompaniment for grilled meat, fresh vegetables and wild game.
⇐ 2017 Wild Duck Creek Yellow Hammer Hill
A wine made for pure enjoyment. A unique shiraz, malbec and cabernet sauvignon blend gives this wine greater textural diversity. Carefully selected grapes are fully destemmed, hand-plunged and basket pressed before aging for up to twenty-three months in older French and American Oak barriques, and concrete vats to create a complex and beautiful wine.
⇐ 2019 Sutton Grange Fairbank Rosé
A 3:1:1 ratio of syrah, sangiovese and
cabernet sauvignon create a fresh
and fruity wine. Aromas of strawberry
and blood orange subside to savoury
notes of fennel and thyme. On the
palate, cranberries and spice combine
with a long, dry mineral drive on the
mid-palate to produce a savoury
and crisp finish. The quintessential
Australian dry rosé.
⇐ 2019 Tellurian Blanc
A versatile white wine with fresh aromatics and lovely texture. A luscious blend of three grape varieties that grow beautifully in Victoria’s gorgeous sunny days and cool, calm nights. Marsanne brings expressive fruit while the fiano and riesling evoke aromatics, texture, and fresh acidity.
