PERFECT PAIRING
Grilled and roast lamb (Pauillac Lamb if you can source it!) with garlic and rosemary; fillet mignon and mushrooms braised in a whisky pan sauce; or beef daubes and other stews. Stronger cheeses like Roquefort, Camembert and Brie or hard British territorial cheeses such as Cheshire and red Leicester work well with the tannins. For vegetarians and vegans, think the dark flavours of roasted mushrooms, dried cranberries in spinach salad or tossed with charred Brussel sprouts, or perhaps roasting cauliflowers with a rub of sumac or za-atar or a hint of turmeric with roasted root veggies. Umami flavours in soy are another option and leverage the healthy fats in avocados.

ABOUT THIS WINE
This wine is a blend of three classic Bordeaux varieties - Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot harvested in April 2018. The aim has been to replicate some of the great right bank Bordeaux blends of Pomerol - Merlot for middle palate and depth, Cabernet for structure, brightness and acid and Petit Verdot for colour and intensity. Vibrant colour with purple hues and aromas of ripe berry and blackcurrant. Very long palate with chocolate and spice characters and integrated oak. Balanced tannin finish.

About Australia

A large, climatically diverse country with incredibly diverse terrain, producing just about every wine style imaginable, Australia has a grand winemaking history and some of the oldest vines on the planet. Both red wine and white wine from Australian are wildly popular and beloved.

Shiraz is indeed Australia’s most celebrated and widely planted variety; Barossa Valley leads the way, producing exceptionally bold and supple versions. Cabernet Sauvignon, Australia's second most planted variety, can be blended with Shiraz but also shines on its own particularly in Coonawarra and Margaret River. Grenache and Mourvèdre are also popular, both on their own and alongside Shiraz in Rhône Blends. Chardonnay is common throughout the country and made in a wide range of styles. Sauvignon Blanc has recently surged in popularity to compete with New Zealand’s distinctive version and Semillon is often blended in Margaret River or shines on its own in the Hunter Valley. Riesling thrives in the cool-climate Clare and Eden Valleys. Sticky-sweet fortified wine Rutherglen is a beloved regional specialty of Victoria.
