Woodstock Old Fortified Tawny Style NV
Winter is fortified season. As part of a new tasting experience at the Woodstock cellar door, three fortifieds and a Botrytis have been matched with Haigh's Chocolates. A dark chocolate almond cluster is the weapon of choice with this Old Fortified Tawny Style.

Woodstock Muscat NV
Dangerously smooth, I received this Muscat from Woodstock as part of their celebration of International Chocolate Day. Three fortifieds and a Botrytis have been matched with Haigh's Chocolates for a very different cellar door tasting.

Howard Park Petit Jeté NV
Really enjoyable, this is a serious looking fizz that is not so serious on the hip pocket. Nicely done from the crew at Howard Park.

There's something about Champagne that just makes you feel a little bit fancy. This Pommery impressed deluxe. A blend of forty crus, it sees 36 months in bottle before release.

Yelland and Papps Old Vine Grenache NV
This wine grows on you - big time. The marriage of three vintages (2018, 2019, 2021) from the same vineyard, it's a bit like stepping onto a cable bridge. Initially a little shaky, with some forward momentum you can't help but embrace the vista and natural beauty that surrounds you.

Blue Pyrenees Sparkling Shiraz NV
Sparkling Shiraz is SO Australian but the shame is that it is pigeon holed as a Christmas Day drink. Surely we can do better than 1 out of 365? Check out this great value beauty and perhaps your afternoon drinks with friends may change course.
