The first 3 of 5 Limited Edition Winexpert Kits are in!
The four grapes showcase a host of brilliant flavours of bright fruit, excellent structure and a long finish. Viognier from Chile gives apricots, blossoms and stone fruit. Chenin Blanc from California gives a wonderful melony-honeyed aroma with hints of apple. Gewürztraminer from Washington contributes lychee, rose petals and floral notes, and Muscat from Australia’s Murray-Darling Valley gives wonderful grapey notes with dried fruit and hints of orange peel.
Full-bodied yet supple.

South African Shiraz Cabernet with Grape Skins
This classic blend showcases the depth and ripeness of these intense grapes. Cabernet Sauvignon’s classic character of
blackberry, currants, black cherry and cedar blend seamlessly with the densely packed berry, chocolate, espresso and pepper characters of Shiraz, with a hint of earthiness. As it ages it will show ever more blackberry along with plum and a hint of tobacco leading to rich vanilla and toasty-smoky notes.

South African Viognier Chenin Blanc Roussanne
The three grapes make a unique wine of elegance, power and delicacy: crisp, but honeyed, with aromas of apricot, orange blossoms, herbal tea and melons give way to a medium body and a long rich finish of floral notes. The depth and complexity of this white wine make it an excellent partner with richly flavoured foods: curries, Satay, and South-Asian dishes, along with creamy or buttery sauces and soups.
SWEETNESS: Dry BODY: Medium ALCOHOL: 13%*
