About the Wines
Riesling, Skillogalee 2017

Sauvignon Semillon, Cricket Pitch 2019
Hunter Valley, Australia
This is a dry and refreshing blend of Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon from New South Wales. It is pale yellow in the glass with citrus pith and floral notes on the nose. The palate is light and refreshing with citrus and melon fruit, leading to fresh grapefruit and lime on the finish.
Chardonnay, Hay Shed Hill 2018

Grenache, Seppeltsfield 2018
Barossa Valley, Australia
Sourced from the iconic Great Terraced Vineyard the Barossa Grenache is joven in style accentuating its juicy and bright characters. Lively, medium crimson with pink hues with lifted, rosewater Turkish delight with a strawberry note. Sweet fruited on the palate with a dried herb savoury edge, talcy acidity and plum skin tannins.
Cabernet Merlot, Pitchfork 2016
Margaret River, Australia
This traditional blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot is from Margaret River where the climate is maritime and similar to that of Bordeaux. The wine has good concentration with ripe berry fruits and impressive mid palate fleshiness. It is soft and round with ripe tannins on finish.
Spice Trader, Heartland 2014
Langhorne Creek, Australia
Soft, smooth and delicious, the Spice Trader is a genuine expression of what Langhorne Creek has to offer. Dark fruits such as blueberries and blackberries are decorated by spice, fresh oregano and dill. The Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon are fermented separately with specific parcels included for their ability to offer greater complexity and character. Time in barrel permits a softening of the wine’s structure. It also offers a complex expression of the fruit and helps the exotic notes of spice to be discovered.
