An opaque ruby colour. Powerful, plentiful, seductive blackberry and blackcurrant aromas including baking spices and floral qualities. Soft, silky and impressively pure, with vibrant dark berry flavours and fine-grained tannins. Surprisingly juicy and persistent with excellent saturation and clarity on the palate.
Husband and wife team Rosa and Moises both come from long lines of vineyard owners and are certainly putting their inheritance to good use - Bodegas Arrocal located in Gumiel de Mercado, in the Ribera del Duero, is a shining example of the modern winemaking era of Spain. This project began in 1999 when they took over the family vineyard and planted new plots. In 2003 they built the winery and began making their own wines. The result of this project, with all its work, effort and excitement, has been ARROCAL – their passion.

Full bodied dense ripe berry flavours with notes of vanillian oak but yet long and smooth. Best served with a red wine casserole or a juicy steak with red onion jam. Can be enjoyed now but would also reap benefits of further cellaring.Grapes: ShirazRegion: Coonawarra / PadthawayLocation: AustraliaAlcohol Content: 14.5%Awards: Double Gold - Finger Lake International Wine Competition 2015Gold - CWSA 2015Gold - International Wine Contest Bucharest 201589 points - James Halliday 2015 Approachable, easy...

We've secured the remaining library stock of this prestigious Reserve Pinot Gris from Matakana Estate. Until now this lovely oaked Pinot Gris has only been available in select export markets and at Auckland Airport Duty Free stores for $42.50 per bottle. The Matakana region is proving to have great potential to produce quality Pinot Gris wines, and Matakana Estate's aim is to nurture the natural earthy stone-fruit character of this grape—along with the influence of our Matakana vineyard’s terroir.
