Carmenere This variety is considered as the flagship red wine of Chile. It was not until recently that the carmenere has been identified as its own varietal dating back to pre Phylloxera France. For centuries, in Chile, the carmenere has been mistaken for merlot. This wine is big, soft and spicy all at once. The mouth filling flavours are enhanced by the ever present oak.
Merlot The merlot varietal is the only grape which is a serious threat to unseat the Cabernet Sauvignon as the king of wines. Our Chilean merlot is of a deep burgundy color with a predominant bouquet of ripe red berries and hints of spices with a violet undertone. The initial attack is smooth, yet as it makes its way through the palate, you will realize that this is a full bodied long finish wine. A little confusing at first, it will disclose all its well kept secrets on the first sip. The body is well balanced and enhanced by the right amount of oak and not overpowered by it.
Malbec Chilean Malbec is an unforgettable journey through Chile’s wine country. A beautiful garnet robe, dark red cherry flavors and a nose comprising of cigar tobacco and coffee all combine for a delectable experience.
Chardonnay If the cabernet sauvignon is king, then it is only fitting to crown the chardonnay as queen of wines. The most popular white wine varietal we know. Our Chilean chardonnay is of a golden straw color with a bouquet of tropical fruit and undertones of vanilla. On the palate it reveals flavors reminiscent of passion fruit and freshly picked citrus. A crisp well balanced wine easily enjoyed during a meal or during a "tete a tete" by your favorite fireplace.
Chardonnay / Semillon This wonderful blend brings together two very different elements in a harmonic union. The chardonnay brings its flavors of tropical fruits with hints of vanilla, while the semillon contributes a honeyed vegetal character with nutty butter-scotch nuances. The resulting wine is truly a symphony of flavors.
Sauvignon Blanc Second only to the chardonnay in popularity. Our Chilean sauvignon blanc is of a light amber color with a predominantly citrus bouquet and floral undertones. On the palate the sauvignon blanc is crisp and clean, easily enjoyed on its own or with light dishes.
Viognier A medium-bodied white wine with aromas of freshly picked green apples and apricots that displays a stunningly long and floral aromatic finish. Take a sip of Chile!
South African Fresco
CABERNET SAUVIGNON | SOUTH AFRICA In the world of wines, the Cabernet Sauvignon is one that does not get neglected – and with good reason! The intense mouthfeel coupled with fruity notes of cassis, plums and cherries make this wine an unequivocal master of provoking the senses. Dry, full-bodied and slightly woody arising from the natural overabundance of tannins. If you are courageous enough to set this South African Cabernet Sauvignon aside for 12+ months, it will give new meaning to the phrase “ages like fine wine”!
SHIRAZ | SOUTH AFRICA Experience one of South Africa’s most renowned grapes: a dry, full-bodied cherry-red Shiraz with fruity, spicy notes when young. As it ages, subtler flavors like coffee, chocolate begin to take over. The nose slowly develops a hint of charcoal, which adds to the mysteriousness of this classic wine. Enjoy it with company if you really want to share it, but don’t be ashamed of keeping it your own little secret!
SAUVIGNON BLANC | SOUTH AFRICA You would be hard-pressed to find a more refreshing wine than a young, crispy South African Sauvignon Blanc. This splendid white wine is made to be enjoyed quite young. The combination of greenish, vegetal and mineral flavors emanating a few weeks after fermentation will make it very difficult to put this one away for a while. Off-dry with a lively acidity and medium finish. Serve slightly cool with light seafood platters.
PINOTAGE | SOUTH AFRICA A South African line-up is not complete without a Pinotage. This bold red wine is synonymous with South Africa and it’s no wonder why – its hints of dark and red fruits combine to produce a medley consisting of blackberries, raspberries and licorice on the palate. More subtle flavors include rooibos, tea leaf and flavorful pipe tobacco. The bouquet exudes hints of wood and spices. Relatively high acidity provides a strong finish, making it the perfect pairing for game meats, gourmet burgers and homemade pizza.
ORANGE MUSCAT | AUSTRALIA This white wine has citrus and honey notes with a slight sweet finish. On the palate it is fresh and crisp with a lingering clementine flavor. Served chilled as an aperitif wine or simply enjoyed cold on the patio during the HOT summer days
Chardonnay | AUSTRALIA This Australian Chardonnay offers up a complex fruity bouquet, with hints of ripe stone fruit and an underlying citrus note. On the palate it is well balanced with just the right amount of oak enhancing its full bodied flavor. Perfect as a “tete a tete” wine or with your favourite grilled white meats or fish.
SHIRAZ | AUSTRALIA This Shiraz offers up rich earthy flavors on the palate. A medium bodied wine with hints of pepper and blackberries. Pairs well with charcuterie, roasted beef, lamb and venison
PETIT VERDOT | AUSTRALIA Bold and full bodied, the Australian Petit Verdot offers up flavors of dark fruits; black cherry, plums, with firm tannins and hints of spice. A robust wine that will age gracefully and gain in complexity. Pairs well with hearty roasted red meats and aged strong cheese.
Merlot | AUSTRALIA Soft and mellow texture right from the start. This Merlot offers hints of cassis with light floral notes. Pairs well with grilled or Cajun style red and white meat, red sauce pasta.
Cabernet Sauvignon | AUSTRALIA Full bodied deep garnet red. This wine offers up flavors of blackcurrant, blackberries with a slight hint of cedar. The tannin structure of the cabernet Sauvignon matched with French Oak, create a wonderful symphony of tannins. 12 months of ageing will result in a softer easier drinking wine. Pairs well with red meats, poultry and fish.
