Winemaker’s Tasting Notes

WHITES   220.24

Buttery Chardonnay (225.24)
Oozing with tropical fruit, pears, creamy vanilla and honey. This big, showstopper wine has a soft, round, buttery mouthfeel, with perfectly balanced acidity. Perfect for the “I only drink red” wine lover. Malolactic fermented. Aged on American oak.

Classic Chardonnay
This beautiful wine opens with hints of apple and apricot, finishing with toasted coconut lingering on the palate. Aged on French oak to showcase its old world character.

Fumé Blanc 
Our version of the classic, made popular by the great Robert Mondavi, is a rounder, richer version of a Sauvignon Blanc. With flavours of melon and pineapple and a slight toasted finish. Aged on French oak, just like in the Loire Valley.

Off dry and citrusy, this beloved wine is perfectly balanced with lychee and tropical fruit tones. Aromatic and spicy, a crowd pleaser for sure. Fermented with elderflowers. Unoaked.

Sauvignon Blanc
Tropical and floral, our version has hints of pineapple, peach and gooseberry. Balanced acidity and passionfruit on the finish. Summer in a glass. Unoaked.

REDS   225.24

Cabernet Sauvignon
This full bodied powerhouse of a wine has cassis and black cherry notes with a warm spice undertone. Firm tannins, medium acidity. Malolactic fermented. Aged on American oak.

This medium bodied popular wine has fruity dark plum, black cherry and vanilla tones. Soft tannins and low acidity. Malolactic fermented. Aged on French oak.

Mixed Black
A balanced, medium bodied blend of Merlot, Barbera and Ruby Cabernet. Notes of berries, plums, baking spice and vanilla make this wine sing. Medium acidity and balanced tannins. Malolactic fermented. Aged on American oak.

Pinot Noir
This lighter in colour red is medium bodied with red cherries and raspberries on the nose and palate. Typical of its character, with earthy notes of forest floor, vanilla and spice. Hailing from California’s coastal region. Malolactic fermented. Aged on French oak.

Soft and full bodied all at the same time. Jammy and peppery with dark plum and berries. Hints of cocoa and tobacco linger, with a medium finish. Balanced tannins and acidity. Malolactic fermented. Aged on French oak.
