Having arrived in Australia in the 1950's the Mitolo family began as market farmers growing vegetables, they branched out into the wine industry many years later and produced their first wine in 1999. Their business plan consisted of 6 words - individuality, integrity, quality, purity, elegance and power. This is an easy drinking Cabernet Sauvignon from Mitolo, bright and juicy on the palate full of dark fruit flavours and a definite richness.
La Crema as a company focus on cool climate wines as they say that these growing conditions produce uniquely expressive and elegant flavours. It makes sense then that they would gravitate towards Monteray, as this is known as one of the best cool climate appellations. This Pinot Noir is rich and juicy with a wonderfully balanced acidity, notes of plum and cherry alongside a hint of rhubarb. Serve this alongside a simple grilled chicken and salad, delicious.
This is another great wine from El Campo, full of fruity blackcurrant and cherry notes, easy drinking with lots of flavour. The perfect match to your Sunday roast!
From California's Central Valley comes this delightfully fruity, crisp, fresh white wine, using a nicely balanced blend of Colombard and Chardonnay grapes. Great for sipping on sunny days...
'Pour Ma Gueule' translates into English as 'for my mouth' referring to the stash of wine that the producers sometimes keep for themselves, surely only the best! Deep red in colour with tons of dark fruit on the nose. Full bodied on the palate with the dark fruits coming through and a touch of black pepper on the lengthy finish.
The M3 vineyard is situated at Lenswood (500 metres above sea level). The production is hand picked to avoid any fruit damage.
As soon as the grapes- in whole bunches- are in the cellar, they are stocked overnight in a cold tank, then pressed the next day. The wine is fermented in French oak barrels (1/3 in new). The maturation process takes place for 9 months in oak with lees stirring, then 2 months in stainless steel tank on lees before the bottling.

Warwicks Stellenbosch Three Ladies, was one of the first Cape blends. Pinotage, Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon interact beautifully to give a superbly easy but complex ride. Vibrant with energy to drink now, but made also to evolve over time when the leatheryness of the Shiraz and savoury spice of the Cabernet will emerge. Great barbeque wine. A James Bond favourite too!
The cuvée takes its name from a small parcel (2.6 hectares) of the Adrianna Vineyard. Situated from Gualtallary District in Tupungato Alto Region (Mendoza). The vineyard is at 1 366 metre above the sea level, it will give to the wine a nice freshness. The unique soil of oval white stones maintains the vineyard well drain. This 100% Malbec grape is fermented in French oak (225 and 500 litre barrels) for 17 days. Then it will mature in cask for around 20 months depending on the vintage.
Richard and Jill McIntyre established the Mooroduc Estate in 1982. It has grown from a small family wine business in Mornington Peninsula (Australia).
The family’s aim is to produce top quality wine. They are hands on with their care of the vineyard and minimise the use of chemicals. They use wild yeast ferments and minimal intervention in their winemaking with a touch of traditional Burgundian techniques.
After hand harvesting, the grapes are totally de-stemmed and put in stainless steel vats. The fermentation process, starting with wild yeast, lasts for an average of 20 days with...
