Evenings are drawing in, there’s a noticeable nip in the air, leaves are starting to fall … Autumn has arrived. Although there are some aspects of the summer we mourn, we get excited about the change in seasons as do our palates.
Our Autumn Wines selection is a gentle entry to reds and a richer style of white wine. The wines can certainly uphold some stronger, flavours, especially if you like to lean, game meats but deliberately the tannins are not to heavy.
What wines should one drink at Christmas? This question is asked every year and there is no wrong answer. The only right answer is life is too short to drink bad wine! In our Christmas Mixed Case wine selection there is something for every occasion, celebration and food you decide to grace your Christmas table. Fill the room with smells of Christmas with some warmed Spiced Mead, complement Smoked Salmon with Maxwell’s Adelaide Hills Chardonnay, try your turkey with Minko’s Pinot Noir and go all out with Fox Creek’s The Vixen sparkling red.

Dowie Doole’s Chenin Blanc is a great choice for those seeking an alternative to Sauvignon Blanc. This is a vibrant and zesty wine with a crisp, dry finish. The alcohol at 11.5% is refreshingly low, too.
A mixed case of easy-drinking, great value reds made up reds such as a soft, medium-bodied Merlot, a fruit bursting Primitivo and a well-made Shiraz. All guaranteed to be very quaffable and very good value.

If you’re a Riesling drinker you will love this release from the famed Polish Hill River sub-region of the Clare Valley.
It’s pure lime and slate and it’s both up-front and reserved at once. It’s intense through the finish yet it feels watery and refreshing and cool minerality through the centre. It’s beautiful drinking but will cellar, too.
