Pinot Noir - Premium
Belle Glos Pinot Noir Meiomi
Very dark, almost purple hue. Aromas of sweet cream, berries, sarsaparilla, and oak spices. The first entry encases the mouth with a velvety richness…almost unctuous, but the acidity enlivens the weight and pops the flavors. This wine hits full force with cola, dark berries, earthy notes and smoked meat. An extremely layered wine both in structure and flavor. These layers emerge independently, and then refocus, allowing the supple tannins to carry the wine through to a lingering, succulent finish.

Santa Margherita Pinot Grigio
Santa Margherita Pinot Grigio is the benchmark by which all other Pinot Grigios are judged. Santa Margherita Pinot Grigio was named the leading Italian wine and continues to be requested by name. Its crisp, elegant character makes it versatile for a wide array of cuisines. The 2011 vintage displays its signature sensory profile, along with fragrant aromatics and freshness on the palate.
Bordeaux - Premium
Chateau Beaumont Cru Bourgeois Haut Medoc
The 2009 vintage featured very dark, almost black Merlot wines with lots of body, ripe tannin, smoothness, and an overall quality rarely equalled at Beaumont. The Cabernet Sauvignon wines are very deeply-coloured and fruity, with fine, straightforward aromas and no herbaceousness. The very close-knit tannic texture bodes well for a wonderful synergy with Merlot in the final blend. The wines made from Petit Verdot, picked when fully ripe, are also deep in colour and fruity, with beautiful tannic structure.
Dessert Red - Premium
Terra d'Oro Zinfandel Port
While some people say "any port in a storm," we strongly suggest ours. Terra d'Oro Zinfandel Port displays aromas of raisined berry fruit, sugared dates, chocolate, caramel and orange peel. The wine's rich, lush, grapy flavors also evoke raisin, cocoa, coffee and toffee. This delicious, fortified wine is perfect on its own or as an accompaniment to chocolate. Also, try it with Stilton cheese and toasted walnuts.
Grenache and Blends - Premium
Yalumba Bush Vine Grenache
A full crimson red with purple hues, this wine has a generous and bright aroma that opens to a spicy clove lift then moves into hints of white pepper and savoury notes amongst an earthy background. This is further complemented by sweet plums and red cherry fruits. Wrapped around a core of juicy red currant fruits, the palate combines layers of fleshy sweet flavours and a fine grained tannin finish. Smoothly balanced and eminently drinkable, this is a wine of medium weight but full on flavour. A perfect match with a juicy roast chicken with roasted potatoes, parsnips and garlic. Also suitable for vegans and vegetarians.
Sauvignon Blanc - Premium
Kim Crawford Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc
Grapes from all over the Marlborough Region are used in this blend where vineyards are selected by flavour profile for desired outcome. We tend towards the more herbaceous end of the flavour profile, ensuring Marlborough's typicity is retained. Style wise, we are looking for upfront herbaceous aromas, backed by ripe fruit flavours of melon, passionfruit and crisp acidity.

Fruity, floral aromas similar to Viognier; hints of peach pit, white pear, flowers, and orange citrus; beautiful structure and acidity.
Spanish Red - Premium
Campo Viejo Rioja Gran Reserva
Ruby red with a gold-tinged rim. Deep, vibrant colour. Complex nose. It retains extraordinarily well the ripe red-berry fruit aromas of blackberries, blueberries, and black plums. Gradually it opens up to reveal smoky, toasted wood nuances, with spices and hints of minerals and tobacco. This is another typical aspect of this wine which has evolved during its time in the barrel and the bottle. Smooth mouth-feel, with sweet, polished tannins. A long, elegant, perfumed finish with final hints of coffee with chocolate.
