Just in time for summer, the 2018 Rose is now available. Fashionably pale in colour with lovely red fruit and a true Provencal savoury character, this is a great food-friendly style of Rose with wonderful texture and a silky finish.
The 2017 Syrah appears to have developed a cult following and is currently giving the Merlot/Franc a run for it's money in the best seller stakes. Ripe, soft and very drinkable.
Down to the last few cases of the 2015 Merlot/Franc, get it while you still can. Dark, soft and succulent, it's a hard one to beat at the price. However, if you miss out on that one the 2016 Merlot/Franc is waiting in the wings. Another great value red from another warm vintage. Bob Campbell rated it his best buy on the Newstalk ZB slot with Jack Tame a few months ago, and even better than that, he suggested it was punching well above it's weight and worth significantly more than our $20 website price. Michael Cooper also gave it a 4 star thumbs up in September.
The 2017 Albarino is drinking beautifully at the moment. With a slightly savoury finish and up front citrus / stonefruit characters, it's a great seafood match. Another 4 star wine from Mr Cooper.
Our Basket Press Merlot/Franc 2016 rated 4.5 stars from Mike, as befits its reserve level status. From yet another warm growing season, it is dark, soft and ripe - and extremely moreish. Superb drinking already (and it's just a baby). This was our biggest seller at Winetopia - clearly a very sophisticated group of consumers.
