A value driven Shiraz that is still full on the palate and bouquet. It's possibly the perfect $10 wine, come see for yourself this weekend.

This gorgeous Pinot Noir will sit beautifully with lightly prepared venison or lamb dishes.
De Vine Waipara Reserve Pinot Gris, only $19.99 or two for $35
This is a sumptuous and rich medium-dry Pinot Gris from one of the country's top growing districts for the grape, Waipara. Michael Cooper says "The 2014 vintage has a fragrant, peachy, spicy bouquet.

It'll match well with white meat dishes and Asian Cuisine.
