Description:

A real powerhouse, this blend has a bold taste and tannic backbone. The addition of Petit Syrah softens the jammy notes that are characteristic of Zinfandel and the Cabernet Sauvignon lends texture. Dark ripe berry aromas blend with smoke and spice elements that lead into flavours of black cherry, vanilla, and black pepper with a lasting finish.

Description:

The practice of blending Shiraz (a red wine grape called Syrah in France) with Viognier (a white wine grape) began because these two grapes grow alongside each other in the Northern Rhône Valley of France, their original home. Rhône winemakers often ferment the grapes together and, under French law, are allowed to blend up to 20 percent Viognier into their red wines. Because Viognier brings an aromatic boost to the wine, this practice has become popular in other countries as well, especially Australia. In fact, Australia has long been renowned as a great producer of Shiraz wines. Some of the most prized are blended with Viognier for a full-bodied wine bursting with floral and fruit aromatics.

Australia Shiraz Viognier is stylish yet refined. It is lush with a tapestry of smooth tannins and succulent dried fruits, vanilla and black pepper.

Description:

Carménère is considered the national grape of Chile. Like many of the world's leading grapes, it was born in the French wine region ofBordeaux. The grape was finicky in the French climate, and often had difficulties ripening. When the Phylloxera plague of 1857 wiped out most of Europe's vineyards, Carménère was considered extinct. Luckily, before Phylloxera hit Europe, a few Carménère cuttings had been exported to Chile, whose wine region was just getting started. The vines flourished in the drier climate and were soon growing in most Chilean wine regions. But, up until 20 years ago, it was often mistaken for Merlot, despite the different appearance in the vineyard and distinct taste in the glass.

Opulent and rich, Carménère boasts the luscious flavoursof red cherries and berries, with hints of spice and leather enhanced with robust tannins.

Description:

Tempranillo is the signature wine grape in its native home of Spain, where they have been making it into wine for over 2,000 years. In all great Spanish wine regions, from Rioja, Navarra, Ribera del Duero through to Toro, La Mancha and Penedès, it is the defining grape of the best red wines.The name Tempranillo is derived from the wordtemprano, which in Spanish means "early", because it's considered an early ripeneramong Spain's red wine grapes. It was traditionally cultivatedas a low bush vine dotting the Spanish landscape, but with modern viticulturalpractices, this is now changing. When Tempranillo is grown, with care, in the right spots, it produces extremely long-lived and deliciously fruity wines.

Sourced from native Spain, Tempranillo adds panache to any cellar. It skillfully balances fresh berries with savory notes of pepper and smoke.
