Medals and Top Reviews abound amongst this week's free tastings!


Matua Lands and Legends Sauvignon Blanc $19.99

Winner of a Gold Medal at the Decanter World of Wine Awards, this is a stunningly good representation of New Zealand's top wine varietal. Intriguing aromas of smoky pineapple and dried sage leap from the glass. The palate is brimming with ripe blackcurrant and zesty citrus. It's refreshing and moth wateringly luscious.

Stony Estate Central Otago Organic Reserve Chardonnay $12.00 or six bottles for $60 - amazing drinking value!

"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 in his 4.5 Star review. Also 4.5 stars from Wine Orbit and 4 stars from Michael Cooper..

Need we say anymore??? This is a massive hit with judging panels around the world. Deep purple in colour. Ripe blackberry and plum fruits on the nose with floral notes. Varietal fruit-driven palate, with cherry/berry fruit and spice flavours. Soft tannins complement the fruit with mouth-filling generous finish. Match this red beauty with Roast Beef, Lamb or Venison...or as with most Shiraz, your favourite spicy dish. Elsewhere $21.99+, Manly Liquor, just $16.99.

MORTON ESTATE 2009 BLACK LABEL MERLOT - $19.99

Aged by the winery just for us, this wine delivers plums and blackcurrant on the nose, with hints of smokey leather and sweet vanilla also evident. Dark plums and blackcurrants again dominate the palate, inter-mingled with dark, high-cocoa chocolate and some subtle cedar characters. The experience is extended with a long vanillin- oak, soft tannin finish. Superb with rich red meat dishes. Merlot is an easy wine to match with food, but I'd drink this with a hearty steak or lamb offering myself. The experts open it right up and say that it's the perfect rd for matching with white meat dishes. ONLY $19.99 for this amazing wine that can be up to $29.99 elsewhere.
