Rosé 2018 | $24 per bottle

Gold Medal - Melbourne International Wine Competition 2018

Tasting notes: Our 2016 vintage Rosé was Halliday-rated as the top Rosé in Australia - now try the beautiful 2018 version! This perfectly dry Rosé is uniquely made from the Germanic red grape, Trollinger, and other selected Adelaide Hills red varieties. The juice from these grapes was fermented dry and crisp in stainless steel tanks. The wine has a beautiful watermelon juice colour and is fresh, light and dry on the palate with loads of cherries, quince and strawberry flavours. It has excellent structure which allows the wine to be the perfect match with all seafood and South East Asian cuisine - and is fearless when matched with any chilli-based cuisine.
This is a rosé that will age well for between 5 - 7 years.

Zsa Zsa Zweigelt Nouveau 2017 | $35 per bottle

Brand New Release!

Tasting notes: Hahndorf Hill is the only producer of Zweigelt in Australia - Austria's favourite red grape variety. In line with trends towards enjoying lighter red wines - especially for luncheons and hot summer days - this wine is made in the Nouveau-style that's light in alcohol (12.0%) but deep and complex in flavour and aromatics.
The hand harvested grapes were placed as whole bunches in stainless steel, then covered with a blanket of carbon dioxide so as to encourage carbonic maceration. The completed wine was then pressed off the bunches and then aged for 16 weeks in old barriques.
The perfumed nose is full of cassis and gentle spice, whilst the palate is vibrant with fresh cherries, crushed rosemary and clove spice that's well balanced with a juicy acidity and long, gentle tannin structure.
Perfectly matched to all spicy meat dishes, seafood, pork, chicken, all salads and tomato-based dishes. But mostly lamb's new best friend!

Tasting notes: Blaufrankisch is a red grape variety that produces wines of superb quality in its homeland of Austria, where it ranks as the pre-eminent grape in the red wine province of Burgenland.

The palate is silky smooth with a tumble of berries, gentle spice and a smudge of caramel, all perfectly wrapped in generous yet gentle tannin.
