This is a rich and vibrant shiraz, with fresh dark berry fruits made irresistible with dark chocolate, liquorice and spice flavours. Soft and balanced.

Hailing from California, this wine is bursting with aromas of raspberry, cherries and redcurrant, and flavours of fresh fruit, creamy caramel and a touch of pepper.
Hardys Tintara Cabernet Sauvignon
Stylish and timeless, this shiraz is brimming with flavour – berries, plums, spicy fruitcake, mint, chocolate and peat. A lovely wine to savour.
Pasqua Le Collezioni Merlot
A good pick for those who crave an intense red wine, with flavour that lasts. Inviting scents of blackcurrants, plums and herbs follow through into lasting fruity flavours. Available in an impressive 1.5L magnum bottle.
