Unique. Exceptional. Limited.

Introducing the NEW SELECTION Australian Grenache Rosé. Crisp hints of red cherry, fresh strawberry and a barely off-dry, refreshing finish. Enjoy it this summer with your favourite summer salads and barbecue fare. Only a limited quantity of this fantastic varietal was produced so get yours before they’re gone! You must pre-order by February 22! The kits will be in the store in early March and will be ready for sipping on the patio or deck this summer. Made in store $183.00 Take Home $127.00



The February LE2013 wine is Pacific Quartet. If you pre-ordered this wine, we will be calling you shortly to let you know the kits have arrived in the store! The four grapes showcase a host of brilliant flavours of bright fruit, excellent structure and a long finish. Off-dry, this wine will be delicious for early drinking, but will evolve tremendously over time. Full-bodied yet supple, this wine has a range of fruit character and enough acidity to stand up to a wide range of food but is delicious on its own to sip on a patio or deck. If you did not pre-order and think you want this delicious white wine, call us today. The Limited Edition wines always sell out fast and this one will be gone quickly. Made in the store $192.00 Take home $136.00
