Four Spectacular Wines on the free tasting barrel this week

Weaver Summer Rose

This was one of our best ever picks. The great people at Weaver rang and said do you want last year's vintage at a great rate. We said great. You guys said great. Here we are. Still got a few cases of this bargain left. John's going to grab one of them for the Christmas season. You should too! At just $11 a bottle when you buy two or more this is almost a steal. We've got cases stacked at the front of the shop to make the process really easy! Enjoy this delicious Rose with a fresh seafood medley salad.

de Vine Organic Chardonnay

"Lots of fruit-strength in this wine, plenty of spine and some oak, working together well in a balanced way.  Quite a strong Chardonnay, a food wine, mouth-filling and the components are still able to unfold the fruit statement further over the next two (more) years.  Very good drinking, a little gem still fulfilling itself." Peter Saunders 4.5 Star Review. $12 per bottle or $10 a bottle for the case buy. Great with creamy seafood pastas!

Giesen Brother's Pinot Noir

Now our most popular Pinot between $20 and $30, the Giesen Brothers is a delightful fruit of the forest and smoked cherry delight. A good Marlborough example like this one always delivers more than its shelf price when compared to say an Otago example because the base costs in Marlborough are so much lower than in Central. Normally tipping the scales just over $30, this beautiful wine is currently just $21.99 a bottle and comes in convenient and easy to carry six packs if you'd like to stock it up a little. With a 5 Star Cuisine recommendation, it's at the top of the game for truly brilliant Pinot Noir. Try this delicious wine with a venison poached in red wine sauce.

Mission Estate Cabernet Sauvignon

Mission's entry level Cabernet Sauvignon is a must try at just $13.99. It's a Gold medal winner at CWSA and offers hints of cassis and blackberry. Medium bodied with sweet rich fruit on the finish. It's balanced and well rounded delivering well above its price point for Cabernet fans! Great with lasagna and a crisp side salad.
