Our Wine Wednesdays, include one *free sample from each of our hand selected fine wine features (up to four wines). New wines are chosen each week. This week: Southern Hemisphere
Andrew Peace Masterpeace Semillon Sauvignon Blanc
Shows bright lemon hues with hints of youthful green. Fresh, lively aromas of tropical fruit such as pineapple and citrus overtones with fresh acidity and clean finish.
Marisco The Ned Pinot Rose
Born of the Waihopai Valley, The Ned represents the vibrant diversity that is so prevalent in the Marlborough wine-growing region. One of Marlborough’s famous peaks, The Ned mountain served as the playground for Marisco founder, Brent Marris, during his youth. The ethos “Young At Heart” encapsulates this wine; a true expression of grassroots winemaking that places the energy and liveliness of adventure in every bottle. The wonderful rose petal scented aroma dovetails into pure berryfruit characters with bright crisp acid edges and finishing with fleshy tangelo and watermelon flavours.
Andrew Peace Masterpeace Cabernet Petit Verdot
A seductive and pleasing combination. Cabernet hosts a black olive and cassis nose while the Petit Verdot constrains the sweeter fruit characters of blackcurrant and blackberry. While still young, this wine has a smoked capsicum undertone that will dissipate and a gentle soft back palate will please the drinker. Paired with a char grilled steak.
Barossa Valley Estate GSM
Grenache 35%, Shiraz 34%, Mourvèdre 31%. Grenache Shiraz Mourvèdre is a beautiful combination of these three majestic grape varieties perfected in a true Barossa Valley style. Its name is an exquisite mouthful – and so is this wine. It may be hard to pronounce, but it’s easy to love. Fragrant violet with a burst of red berryfruits lingering softly on a velvety texture.
