Pertaringa Two Gentleman's GSM 2022


Skirt steak, basil and tomatoes with a large glass of this Pertaringa GSM will do me just fine thank you very much. A great match for a quick steak fix or a chill out by the fire pit, the fruit and savoury highlights fold into one another with ease.

Chapel Hill MV Mourvedre 2022


All I want is a rack of pork ribs with this Chapel Hill MV Mourvedre in a glass to wash them down. What a beauty!

Chateau Paul Mas Clos des Mûres 2021


This juggernaut of a bottle from France hits our shores once more. For all its hulking presence, it's only $25 but its weight certainly gives the impression that it is a lot more important than the price suggests.

Lou Miranda Centenarian Old Vine Shiraz Mourvedre 2018


Rich and dense, this is a sledgehammer. Loaded with oak, tuck it away for a while and watch it emerge. Its boisterous persona is fit for sipping during a chilly night as the rain taps on the roof.

Tellurian Rosé 2020


This Rosé from Tellurian is a blend of Shiraz,  Nero d'Avola, Mourvedre and Grenache. A terrific food wine it must be said, but the school of thought is that a 'food wine' is below par. Not so. This wine will make the dining experience enjoyable rather than it needing a wingman to prop it up.
