Mazza’s 2020 vintage of Bastardo Rosé has just been bottled and we’re excited to be launching it here in the Wine Loft! Join us on Saturday, October 14th to discover why this delicious rose is highly rated by renowned wine critic James Halliday.
As with all of their anticipated Bastardo rose vintages, Mazza has crafted an excellent, crisp, dry rosé with beautiful aromatics and a delicious, savoury palate. It will be launched alongside the sounds of smooth jazz and canapes.
Don’t let the name fool you! Bastardo Rosé is named after the grape from which it’s made; a Portuguese variety called Bastardo traditionally used to make Port.
Mazza Wines is a family-run vineyard located near Donnybrook and is owned and run by David and Anne Mazza, who are extremely passionate about the varieties they have chosen to grow. They’re one of the few growers in Australia of this variety and they believe they’re the only vineyard that makes a Bastardo Rosé in Australia.
Our flower department have received a large delivery of locally grown, fresh tulips in an array of beautiful colours. Tulips are sturdy flowers that can last up to 10 days after cutting if you know how to care for them correctly. When shopping for tulips, you may be tempted to buy the tulips with fully-opened, vibrant colored petals. If you prefer them to last a long time, choose tulips that are still tightly closed with some green buds that aren't fully coloured yet. The flowers will open over the course of a few days, giving you more time to enjoy them.
Our pop-up butchery will be open from Monday, 19 October 2020 until Sunday, 25 October 2020. We will be opening our brand new butchery on Monday, 26 October 2020! We will have a temporary butchery located down the alleyway between the Butchery and Two Fat Indians! Simply follow the signage or ask one of our lovely members of staff to direct you.
Our butchery has been custom designed by Matthew Crawford Architects and is the re-imagining of the traditional butcher shop setting. We believe it completely redefines the category across Australia by creating a distinct, interactive retail experience. We aim to highlight the quality of the cuts on display, as well as the expertise and precision involved in preparation. In addition to the current offering, a new charcuterie department will be added to The Butchery and will be stocked with some of the world’s finest produce!
$19.95 per kilo!

Long Rays is powered by a dedication to being the perfect support act for spirits and now available from our Grocery department! Whereas some mixers are designed to be the hero of the drink, Long Rays’ tonic and sodas are lighter on the tongue and more subtle in flavour, helping the intended nuance to shine through while also doing away with harsh textures. Long Rays’ premium tonic is a beautiful accompaniment to gins and even the odd tequila, with a flavour profile boasting Tasmanian native mountain pepper and Queensland lemon myrtle (which helps balance the quinine notes) as well as a crisp soda finish. Similarly, the original soda is a versatile addition to many spirits, boasting Victorian spring water that has been given life with some balanced carbonation. Both products come in packs of four, with each 275-ml bottle containing enough liquid for two serves.

The history of Domaine Sainte-Marie dates back to the 18th century. The Domaine Sainte-Marie covers over 40 hectares, all of which is organically farmed. Harvests are performed between 3am and 8am when the grapes are at their coolest to retain the delicate flavour and natural freshness. This rosé is a complex blend of Cinsault, Grenache, Syrah, Carignan and a touch of Cabernet. On the nose emerges a delicate touch of white flowers and small red berries. The mouth is clean, soft, pleasant, and well balanced, with a salty finish. This wine is sure to satisfy during these spring months and is open to taste in our Wine Loft!
