Autumn Wines


autumn wines

Autumn is all about transition—and it's an excellent time to try something new.

 

The term ’Signature’ or ‘Flagship’ wine does not have a specific definition within the wine industry, so there are no hard and fast rules dictating how a winery chooses its flagship wine or even if they have one. What is common to all flagship wines is that they are all wines of exceptional quality, are good examples of the style, and embody the grape variety and region in which it was grown.

2022 Cabernet Malbec


A classic blend from our cooler vines. Rich in flavour, texture and varietal characters. This is a stand out medium bodied red that lingers with the elegance of a full bodied wine, without the taxing texture.

FOOD MATCH A succulent eye fillet, vegetarian lasagna or French onion and beef casserole will pair perfectly as the cooler temps begin to arrive.

CELLARING 7 years
