By Chadsey’s Cairns 2014 Chenin Blanc once again excels — from its burst of ripe pear on the nose, to the silky mouth feel, followed by a brilliant clean that resets the palate for another sip. This absolute gem is crafted from 100% estate grown fruit…
Pinot Gris crafted by the Harwood Estate team … glass of fun from the first sip as the bubbles tease your nose, until the flavours play upon your palate … Sandbanks 2015 Reserve Chardonnay … imparts a pleasing nutty vanilla nuance, yet allows the flavours of almond and caramelized pineapple to shine.
Domaine Darius Rosé … A complete delight, it transported me to the south of France without the cost of airfare. I love the weight of this wine on the palate — as well as the personal touches like the hand-inscribed details on their labels.
My favourite Sangria is a blend of red wine, fruit, and one once of Grand Marnier per bottle of wine. Allow the mixture to chill overnight in a fridge. Depending on the occasion, add ice cubes and one litre of sparkling water (or a bottle of sparkling wine). Served chilled, in wide wine glasses.

Stanner’s Pinot Gris … Colin left the juice in contact with the skins, which had the effect of adding a dimension of amber colour to all that is fine regarding this varietal: subdued notes of Meyer lemon and Anjou pear with a hint of almond on the nose, and a mouth feel of ginger spice lime key pie.
