“I have tasted heaps and heaps of sauvignon blancs
and sem-sav blends, and none comes close to the quality of this old
stalwart. With refined aromas of lemongrass and just a hint of peapod,
its racy, chalky and delicious.” Max Allen

For starters, it is hard to find a better Cabernet for the price than Mitolo’s Cabernet Sauvignon Jester, which spent nine months in used French oak prior to bottling. Approximately 20% of the grapes were dried on racks (a traditional Amarone technique) in order to concentrate the flavor. Yet there is no pruny or raisiny character to the wine. It is a dense ruby/purple-tinged offering displaying loads of roasted meat,blackcurrant, and plum aromas, deep, medium to fullbodied flavors, sweet tannin, and an expansive, savory texture. This is a stunning Cabernet Sauvignon to drink now and over the next 7-8 years.
Premium Tasmanian Sparkling Rose - 2004
A captivating, long, rich and balanced palate; sophisticated and beautifully defined creamy/bready mousse (Cordon de Mousse) forming a necklace, with strings of pearl bead that provides both fine and lively texture to the mouth feel. Freshly baked crusty bread, blood orange, ripe nectarine and the subtle hints of rhubarb and wild strawberry, The addition of our liqueur de dosage at disgorgement has added richness and complexity to the already multi-layered palate. The finish is long and elegant with marzipan nuttiness and mineral infused characters with a flavour richness that leads to a crisp, long dry lingering finish making it an ideal compliment to food.
Distinctly Zin - showing walnuts and wood spice over ripe raisony fruit and hints of licquorice and clover. huge in every way, a challenge to swallow - big flavours, big structure, big potential. A wine for macho winos - our biggest Zin to date.

Brut Impérial is a balanced assemblage of the three vine varieties disclosing a succession of elegant and harmonious sensations, a fresh maturity, supple and refined lines, inspiring well-being and an emotion which is appreciated and shared. Pale yellow with shades of green. Subtely vinous, with a vine and lime blossom attack. Delicate well-balanced ; leaves behind a sense of harmony, mellowness.
Moet et Chandon is home to the prestigious Dom Perignon Cuvee, and to the process of "methode champenoise". This House produces one of the largest selling champagne brands in the world. James Halliday
I have not always been an admirer of this label, but this wine swept me away; the clean, smooth, fruit-driven bouquet with its twist of nut and cashew, the almost delicate palate with attractively smooth nectarine and citrus flavours running though to a beguiling finish. 95 out of 100. James Halliday
A great champagne gift,
60% Pinot Noir in the mix. Medium full colour. Rich mainstream champagne flavours. Nice lift and breadth on the palate with a great long finish. Lovely drinking with nice underlying complexity. Quality: Excellent
