UNION RED – France – Release Date December 2019
Alc./ vol: 13% | Body: Medium | Sweetness: Dry

THE WINE:
Union Red is a flavourful blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc. The Cabernet Sauvignon has aromas of cassis and savoury spice, along with flavours of black currant on the palate and a juicy dark berry finish. The Merlot and Cabernet Franc unify this blend and bring flavours of black cherry, tobacco and subtle hints of pepper.

THE REGION:
A historic region that rests along the Mediterranean coast of France, bordered to the west by the Rhone River and Cote d’Azur on the east. Provence is blessed with a perfect climate for growing grapes; lots of sunshine, minimal rain, and warm days and cool nights. The region is famous for the “Mistral” winds which come off the Mediterranean to moderate the temperature and keep the vineyards dry and free of pests.

THE FOOD:
Drink alongside black pepper steak, braised leg of lamb or prime rib. Alternatively try a savoury lentil or mushroom stew, or roasted potatoes and root vegetables. Cheddar, aged gouda or other hard cheeses also make a great pairing for Union Red.

UNION WHITE – France- Release Date January 2020
Alc./ vol: 12% | Body: Medium | Sweetness: Dry

THE WINE:
A classic French blend of Sauvignon Blanc and Sémillon create the crisp and medium body Union White. Expect aromas and flavours of citrus, gooseberry, and pear with faint herbaceous and mineral notes. Union White has bright acidity, bold aromatics and flavours with a clean finish.

THE REGION:
Provence is the oldest wine producing region in France with over 2600 years of grape growing experience. The region borders Italy and the Mediterranean Sea and is known for its diverse landscapes from the Southern Alps to the rolling vineyards and olive groves. Wild rosemary, juniper, thyme and lavender grow all over the region which create character in the wines. The region is graced with a Mediterranean climate of warm days and cool nights and a diverse mix of terroir.

THE FOOD:
Sip this wine alongside shellfish such as oysters and mussels, or white fish like cod or halibut (with butter, caper and lemon sauces). A fresh arugula salad with a lemon parmesan dressing, goat cheese appetizers, tabbouleh, or asparagus risotto would also pair well. Key food flavours that enhance this wine are basil, parsley and citrus.

DOS GRENACHE – Spain / Australia – Release Date February 2020
Alc./ vol: 13% | Body: Full | Sweetness: Dry

THE WINE:
Dos Grenache is a unique full body blend of Grenache from Spain and Australia. In Spain they call the grape Garnacha and it brings jammy aromas and flavours of strawberry, blackberry and dark cherry. The Australian Grenache has very similar characteristics but adds extra richness with notes of candied juicy ripe fruit. Dos Grenache is lush with intense berry flavours, along with hints of vanilla, cinnamon, dried herbs and spice.

THE REGION:
Chiva is located in Valencia which is the centre of Spain’s sunny east coast. The Riverland region in southern Australia is the largest wine growing region that is located east of the Barossa Valley and extends along the Murray River. Chiva experiences very hot days that are relieved with a sea breeze from the Mediterranean. Riverland with a continental climate, sees hot dry and sunny days and relies on the Murray River to irrigate the vines ensuring fully ripe and flavourful grapes.

THE FOOD:
A great wine to match with any grilled, stewed or braised meats especially rosemary rack of lamb. The spice in Grenache also pairs well with hearty dishes that are herb-heavy and savoury such as herb roasted vegetables or ratatouille. For cheese try Manchego or a mild blue.

CARMÉNÈRE PETIT VERDOT – Chile – Release Date March 2020
Alc./ vol: 14% | Body: Full | Sweetness: Dry

THE WINE:
A spicy blend of Carménère and Petit Verdot that is balanced, and fruit driven. Look for black cherry, blackberry and fig with earthy undertones, notes of chocolate, tobacco, tea leaves and savoury spice from the Carménère. The Petit Verdot adds another layer of ripe black fruits, plum and spice on both the nose and palate.

THE REGION:
The Curico Valley is in central Chile, south of the capital, Santiago. It’s a warm valley between the Andes and Coastal mountains. The valley has a Mediterranean climate that experiences hot days and humid cool nights ideal for growing aromatic and flavourful grapes. The soils are composed of limestone and volcanic rock which both contribute to the bold flavours in this wine.

THE FOOD:
Beef brisket, filet mignon, and BBQ lamb chops are just a few of the dishes to pair with this Chilean blend. Stuffed peppers with chorizo and rice, and legume-based dishes are also an excellent match. Try with hard cheeses such as aged cheddar or pair it with 70% dark chocolate.

 

Sour Cherry Dessert Wine
Deep ruby with lovely sour cherry on the nose. Tart cherry flavour that beautifully balances the sweetness of the wine. Warm, lingering finish.

Late Harvest Riesling
Bright yellow colour with notes of ripe apricot, pear and green apple. Honeyed late harvest character balanced by brilliant acidity.
