Bec Hardy Premium Sparkling NV - $30
This dry style sparkling is from the classic varieties of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. The crisp natural acidity makes this the perfect aperitif for any occasion. The palate is well-balanced with a fine persistent bead and tasty flavours of apples and lemons, complemented by crisp acidity.

"It's elegantly lifted on the nose showing white flesh peach, fig, lemon zest and white floral aromas with a hint of oatmeal. The palate displays beautifully rounded mouthfeel together with bright fruit intensity, leading to a lengthy refreshing finish."

"The fruit here was sourced from near the town of Auburn in the Clare Valley, 100% fermentation in stainless-steel, as one would expect. A very pale yellow hue, the nose is a mix with hints of citrus, limes, minerals, river stones, and florals. An attractive, easy-drinking style. Relatively simple but delicious drinking. There is a nice line of acidity. Hints of grapefruit on the palate. The finish lingers well. Enjoy now and for the next five years."

Pertaringa Two Gentlemen’s GSM (McLaren Vale) - $32
A testament to the co-founders of Pertaringa, Geoff Hardy and Ian. From three vineyards the blend is: 50% Grenache, 30% Shiraz and 20%. All varieties were fermented separately and aged 9 months in seasoned French oak before the final blend. The nose offers elegant and attractive aromas of red berries, plums and black olives and the palate is vibrant and complex followed by a long, smooth finish.

"Deep purple, this is ripe and plush with chocolate, licorice, mulberries, cassis, red currants and a note like a richly flavoured (is there any other kind?) chocolate mud cake. Exuberant in style, there is good length here, with the intensity maintained for the full length of the wine. Soft tannins. This is delicious."

Pertaringa Undercover Shiraz (McLaren Vale) - $32
The Undercover Shiraz is named in recognition of McLaren Vale's history of supplying other regions with our finest red grapes. This Shiraz is a blend of three different McLaren Vale vineyards. It’s created in small batch open fermenters before maturation in new and seasoned French oak for 15 months. The nose offers complex aromas and the palate is bright and textural with dark berries, plums and subtle spices, complemented by an elegant and lengthy finish.

“An absolutely cracking McLaren Vale Shiraz from a top vintage. What more could you want? Small batch ferment, eight days on skins, and then maturation for 18 months in French oak. The colour is a vibrant and yet near opaque magenta. Ripe flavours just oozing through here. Chocolate, mocha and coffee bean notes. This is rich and full with big, bold flavours. Expect this to provide great pleasure over the next decade and more. If this rich style is your thing, you’ll love this.”

This Cabernet Sauvignon fruit is sourced from two vineyards. All parcels of Cabernet Sauvignon were fermented and matured in seasoned French oak for 15 months separately. The nose offers wonderful dark fruits including plums and mulberries. While the palate is bold but balanced with gentle tones of blackberries and cherries. And finally complemented by elegant smooth tannins and a lingering finish.
