Sangiovese vs. Chianti

It’s Two vs One in the fantastic battle between Australia & Italy.

We love Sangiovese and of course Chianti, the birthplace of sangiovese. Our enjoyment comes from the rustic feel of this wine style. The Regional Series Sangiovese is earthy, rich and packed full of cherry flavours and aromas, it is mouth wateringly delicious.

The San Felice Chianti is a typical medium-bodied Chianti Classico with notes of classic cherry, raspberry and slight violet. The flavour is dry, with delicate tannins and a fresh acidity, put simply, delicious.

Dating back to the 14the century, Rocca Guicciarda is one of Barone Ricasoli's most storied vineyards. This wine shows classic (fresh, sappy, graphitey) yet contemporary characters in the best sense (clean, pure, textured). Silky and sweet with subtle oak and notes of dried tea, raspberry and cherry-pit outlined by fine, polished tannins.

Tough ask for Glandore to go up against two fine Chianti’s but what do you think? 2 bottles of each wine in your cheeky 6-pack when you add it to your cart.

Pinot Grigio vs. Pinot Grigio

What more can we say about Pinot Grigio that hasn’t already been said? Not a lot. The wines are approachable and incredibly drinkable on a hot summers day. This is the most hotly contested of comparisons, but we feel we have the edge. What will you think?

As a style, Pinot Grigio is usually quite subdued on the nose, however, our Regional Pinot Grigio is bursting with intense white jasmine florals, enhanced by notes of fresh grass and cumquat, the wine simply draws you in. The palate is soft, generous & with some subtle cinnamon spice finishing with a great length.

Pinot Grigio thrives in the Sortesele vineyard, situated along the Adige valley in Northern Italy. The Santi Pinot Grigio has full and complex aromas of pears, exotic fruits and wildflowers. On the palate, the wine has generous, soft but lively fruit with firm flavours, good acidity and a long finish.

Terrific little 6 pack containing 3 bottles of each of these wines. Perfect for a summer’s day. Throw a box in your cart!

Regional Series Shiraz Canberra 2013

Patiently matured in old and new French Hogsheads and Puncheons we want the oak to support, not dominate. The fruit within the matrix of this wine is both delicate and pure.

White pepper, cinnamon and clove all play a role whilst the palate remains medium bodied with great texture and structure. The sweet mid palate fruits show richness and freshness making this a very easy and approachable wine.

We think the flavours and structure of our ACT Shiraz make this the perfect accompaniment to duck. Duck doesn’t have to be an extravagant confit every time so for this wine we suggest a well-balanced duck ragu served with pappardelle.

Regional Series Tempranillo Hilltops 2016

No longer considered an alternative variety on the Australian Wine Scene, Tempranillo has fast become an incredibly popular wine style.

Our 2016 Regional Series Tempranillo is a beautiful garnet red in colour exhibiting aromas of rich cherry pie with hints of cinnamon spice. Like all our Tempranillo’s, we love the complexity that spicy paprika adds.

The palate is firm with a tannic bite balanced by sweet mid-palate blue fruits. The wine has a great length and is ready to be served with a robust food pairing.

To mix things up, replace the traditional Toulouse Sausage in a Cassoulet with a spicy chorizo to get a fantastic match.

Regional Series Shiraz Hunter Valley 2014

From an amazing vintage comes a wine that is still looking as youthful as the day it was bottled.

Deep ruby red in colour with raspberry fruits and a creaminess from French oak. Added complexity comes from lifted aniseed, clove and just a hint of menthol giving vibrancy. Chewy tannins, black pepper and again that spicy aniseed character pair well with the rich earthy tones that are unique to the Hunter Valley. The finish is long and textured with the tannins giving a parting salute on the end.

Cellaring well to 2024 but we are thinking of enjoying it soon and matching with a medium rare, grass fed eye fillet & truffle mash.
