Matsu ‘El Recio’ Tempranillo 2017

Open for complimentary tasting!

11th Jun 2021 | Tasting & Events

Open to taste in the Loft!
Friday, 11 June 2021 - Sunday, 13 June 2021

El Recio translates as 'tough guy' and it's a clue to the style of this Tempranillo from Spain's Toro region. Made from old vines, cultivated biodynamically, the wine matures in new French oak for 14 months, giving it polish and opulence. It begins with pleasant aromas of black cherry, plum, anise, chocolate, licorice and more. Tasting the wine reveals more ripe dark fruit with wonderful streaks of chocolate, vanilla and sweet spice notes wrapped up in a smooth round mouthfeel. Full-bodied, tannic and with good acidity, this is tasty stuff.

Quinta da Pedra Alta - 2017 Pedra a Pedra Tinto

Open to taste in the Loft all weekend!

4th Jun 2021 | Tasting & Events

$29 per bottle (RRP $35)
Open to taste in the Loft
Friday, 4 June - Monday, 7 June 2021

Quinta da Pedra Alta is based in the Cima Corgo of the Douro region in Portugal and the only vineyard in the Douro to have three granite markers (Marcos Pombalinos) on its property. These were awarded to the best land during the demarcation of the Port region in 1761. As it is the tradition in the Douro, all of Quinta da Pedra Alta wines are blends that are considered the most faithful interpretation of the land. This combination of variation of altitude and exposure to the sun helps to give perfect balance and complexity in the wines.

Pedra a Pedra Tinto is made from a blend of indigenous grape varieties grown on the schist soils of the terraced vineyards - 50% Touriga Franca, 44% Touriga Nacional, 5% Tinta Barocca, 1% Fernão Pires. It is an approachable, fruit-driven, structured Douro red with good structure, balanced acidity and a long finish.

Le Col Des Fourches

In-Store tasting this Saturday, 22 May 2021

22nd May 2021 | Tasting & Events

Saturday, 22 May 2021
10:30 am - 1:30 pm

As a French raclette, it's already soft, gooey and ready for melting - though it's delicious even as a table cheese. But melting it really brings out the full profile - a slightly sweet tang reminiscent of stone fruits, but also an intense savoury flavour which really makes you want to go back for seconds. It's best with toasted bread, pickles, sliced meats and potatoes. Naturally, perfect for hearty meals on cold winter nights.

The Lingot d’Argental inherited its creaminess and ease of cutting from the Pavè d’Affinois. This cheese is produced near the Lyon region of France with milk which has undertaken a specific miro-filtration method to yield a silkier, creamier texture. It has a smooth, consistent paste and well rounded, buttery flavour. Its texture is especially mild and smooth, comparable to a triple-cream cheese. The flavour is fresh, delicate and melting. This cheese is a crowd pleaser!
