Mitolo Jester Duo Pack

2017 Shiraz + 2017 Cabernet, McLaren Vale, Australia

All joking aside, this Jester two-pack brings serious big-time flavours. A gift sure to make any wine lover grin.

A Shiraz bright, lifted and aromatic, with raspberry and choc mint characters. Full flavoured and elegant, with dark fruit flavours of plum and blackberry, complemented by dark chocolate, liquorice and white pepper spice.

A Cabernet silken, savoury and medium bodied. Ripe cassis flavours initially, followed closely by a complex mix of savoury characters with more cigar-box, brambles and earthy undergrowth notes that really fill out the mid palate. There’s higher toned red fruits as well on return to the glass with a lovely, tight spine of acidity running through, really drawing the palate out.

Red Knot Duo Pack

2017 Shiraz + 2017 Cabernet, McLaren Vale, Australia

The Red Knot family of wines is designed for immediate enjoyment, full of ripe, fruit-driven flavours. The style is bright, fragrant and varietal with the emphasis on fruit richness, giving the wine lover a delicious wine experience at an affordable price.

A Shiraz with a purple-red color. Pretty primary aromas of ripe mulberries and blueberries are highlighted with nuances of white pepper and vanilla. Bright blackberry and strawberry flavours fill the mid-palate and are focused into the long finish by fine tannins. Fresh acidity and mineral elements complete this vibrant medium to full-bodied McLaren Vale Shiraz.

A Cabernet with a deep purple-red color. Primary aromas of cassis and cherry are highlighted with nuances of bay leaf and cocoa. The luscious blackcurrant, chocolate and Turkish delight flavours are defined and focused by the structural elements of grape tannins and oak, into the long finish.

Dillon’s Rye Single Cask

‘Good things come to those who wait.’ Over three years in oak gives this 100% rye whisky a forward oak character that complements the spiciness of rye grain.
