  • Pieropan's estate covers 58 hectares of vineyard which are situated on the stony hills of Soave Classico. The Pieropan family has been producing wines in Soave since the 1890s. Indeed, they were the first producer to bottle a wine with the name Soave on the label in the early 1930s. Nino Pieropan took over from his father in 1970 and was the first producer in Soave to make a single-vineyard wine, 'Calvarino', in 1971. Nino's two sons, Andrea and Dario, took over the running of the estate in 2017 when Nino fell ill and before he passed away in April 2018. From the 2015 vintage onwards, all Pieropan wines are organically certified. The grapes were grown in the vineyard of 'La Rocca', which takes its name from the adjacent medieval castle and fortress (La Rocca) that dominated the town of Soave, just east of Verona. The soil in La Rocca is unique in Soave in that it is a limestone outcrop (the same soil as in Valpolicella Classico) in a sea of basalt. Because of this soil, the family feels they get sufficient ripeness in the Garganega to make a wine solely from this variety. The selection of the grapes is made in the vineyard, before arriving in the cellar. After gentle, whole-bunch pressing using a nitrogen press, there was a short period of maceration on the skins followed by fermentation at 20ºC in stainless steel tanks and 500 litre oak casks. 60% of the wine remained in 500-litre oak casks while the remaining 40% was aged in 2,000 litre 'botti' or large barrels for one year. The wine was then aged for four months in bottle before release. 'La Rocca' is golden yellow in the glass, with intense, concentrated perfumes that follow through to the palate. On the nose, classic La Rocca aromas of nuts and exotic fruits lead to an elegant and beautifully balanced palate, with notes of spice and a long finish. The long finish has a light mineral edge. Goes well with clams and gnocchi, squid ink linguini, scallops, mushroom risotto, breaded camembert (French cows cheese) cannelloni with ricotta, Caprese salad (Italian Insalata Caprese), crab cassolette or creamed mushrooms Vegan

    Ten Minutes By Tractor is the convergence of a series of journeys that began almost 30 years ago. Over several years, four families came together, all sharing the dream of crafting beautiful wines which are expressive of their heritage. Between these four families (and still independently) they bought up some of the most premium, and perfect, vineyard sites in the cool climate Mornington Peninsula region. From first sniff, this is a quintessential Ten Minutes by Tractor Chardonnay, with flashes of nougat, a drizzle of honey over white peach fruit. Despite the nose suggesting a big wine, this is actually more medium bodied than expected, the back end punctuated by grapefruit acidity, and delivering a wine that is less bombastic and more egalitarian than some of the Estate and Single Vineyard Chardonnay releases while retaining the classic house style. If anything, this will appreciate more time in bottle to grow through the finish. Give it a whirl with spaghetti carbonara but in the classic formula with pecorino, guanciale and no cream or pea risotto, grilled shrimp with apricot glaze & almond or honeycrisp apple pizza with balsamic onions Watch our exclusive Ten Minutes By Tactor Video HERE

Over several years, four families came together, all sharing the dream of crafting beautiful wines which are expressive of their heritage. Between these four families (and still independently) they bought up some of the most premium, and perfect, vineyard sites in the cool climate Mornington Peninsula region. Eventually, the families came together and realised that they shared the same dreams and goals for their wines. They decided to pool their resources and form one unique winery. When deciding upon a name for their venture, someone remarked that their vineyards where 10 minutes away by tractor. The rest is history! Today, they produce some of the very best Pinot Noir and Chardonnay that Australia has to offer. Based in Victoria's Mornington Peninsula, they own some of the finest cool climate sites in the region. A unique Australian producer specialising in cooler climate, Burgundian style wines. The 10X is a benchmark amongst new world Pinot Noirs.

  • Ten Minutes by Tractor is the convergence of wine journeys that began almost 40 years ago, a group of individuals and vineyards that fortuitously came together over time to create the winery that exists today. Their winery started in 1997 with three family owned vineyards in Main Ridge, all ten minutes by tractor apart. Since then they have added new vineyards, but all have their own unique character with different aspects, slopes, soils, altitude and winds which flow through the valleys up from Bass Strait. Cool places. Beautiful places. Places that are defined by the wines they make and which can seem like worlds apart. Now a blend of four vineyards, the Estate Chardonnay takes a different tack this year, the vintage warmth delivering a wine that has more width and volume. Grapes hand-harvested through march, whole bunch pressed and the unsettled juice was transferred to 19% new French oak barriques. Fermentation by indigenous yeasts preceded a partial (83%) malolactic fermentation in spring and regular stirring of lees was carried out over a 11 month barrel maturation. Bottled unfined after filtration. There’s an extra edge of white chocolate on the nose this year too, though backed with a more traditional white peach and nectarine that is the Ten Minutes by Tractor trademark. Underneath, it’s a broadly proportioned wine with a notable depth of flavour this year – a more full-throttle Estate Chardonnay – though with plenty of acidity to carry off the style. Try with creamed salmon roe that has richness to match the wine, also good to go with smoky fried bean curd, field mushrooms and creamy rice Watch our exclusive Ten Minutes By Tractor Video HERE

    Ten Minutes By Tractor is the convergence of a series of journeys that began almost 30 years ago. Over several years, four families came together, all sharing the dream of crafting beautiful wines which are expressive of their heritage. Between these four families (and still independently) they bought up some of the most premium, and perfect, vineyard sites in the cool climate Mornington Peninsula region. Grapes hand-harvested late February-mid March. Whole bunches varied with different parcels between 0-20% with the destemmed portion all whole berries, and transferred to a mix of 5 tonne concrete and 1 tonne stainless steel tanks. Held cold for a few days to delay start of indigenous yeast ferment and typically spends a total of 25-30 days on skins. Cap management by pump over with some plunging towards the end of the ferment. Following pressing, the wine was transferred to 21% new 228 litre French oak barrels for 11 months. Natural 100% malolactic fermentation before bottling unfined and with minimal filtration. Geek Alert: Clones/Vineyards: Coolart (70%), Wallis (12%), Spedding (7%), Judd (6%), McCutcheon (5%) :: MV6 (71%), Abel (14%), 115 (9%), G5V15 (3%), 114 (3%)
    Winemakers: Sandro Mosele, Imogen Dillon, Martin Spedding 11 months ageing: 21% new 228 litre French oak barrels (François Frères) Using fruit from both ‘down the hill’ and ‘up the hill’ imbues this Pinot with welcome layers of flavour. There’s bright fruit, but it dovetails into something darker, the tannins nicely bitter in a savoury fashion. The detail, the completeness of a Pinot that is perfectly mid-weight and assured in its regional style.

    The wine is named after the esteemed South African, Abraham Izak Perold, credited with the development of the Pinotage variety. He toured Europe extensively to explore international grape varieties, returning with some 177 examples! The collection still exists at the Welgevallen Experimental Farm of the Stellenbosch University. However, the development of Pinotage was somewhat fortuitous, Abraham having left crossings of Pinot Noir and Cinsault in his garden while he was traveling. If it wasn't for young lecturer, Charlie Niehaus, who rescued the seedlings, this controversial variety may never have taken off! A fresh red from South Africa with a vibrant purple colour. It is packed with lively red berry and sweet black cherry fruit flavours and there’s a hint of spice and smokiness on the finish.

    Alpha Zeta was started in 1999 with a range of modern, fruit-driven wines from the hills outside Verona. Working with leading New Zealand winemaker, Matt Thomson, their aim was to work with growers (rather than buy bulk wine, which is standard among most wines from Verona at this price) to obtain ripe grapes (by reducing yields and picking later) and then, using Matt's expertise, preserve these flavours in the finished wines. The result is a realisation of the potential inherent in Veronese viniculture. The vineyards are situated in the hills outside Verona in the Valpantena Valley. Cool currents blow down the valley from the foothills of the Dolomites, which helps to moderate the climate, enabling the grapes to ripen slowly. This helps the grapes to retain their aromatic compounds and acidity. The soil is poor and chalky so the vines are put under stress which helps to produce superior quality fruit. The grapes were hand harvested, destemmed, crushed and chilled on the way to the press with no addition of sulphur. The juice was naturally settled, racked and cultured yeasts were added to initiate fermentation which took place at 12-14°C. Half the wine was fermented in oak, and one third of the blend was put through malolactic fermentation in order to add complexity. Straw yellow and bright in the glass, this wine is aromatic and concentrated with a thread of minerality. The palate is clean, fresh and fruit driven, with a medium-bodied mouthfeel and long finish. Great with Dungeness crab mac n cheese or veggie equivalent!

  • This organic estate lies in an iconic Spanish landscape: it was the home of Cervantes’ fictional knight Don Quixote. Moreover, there have been many centuries of the most bitter battles across this land between the invading Moors and indigenous Christians. The plight of a Moorish princess of the time inspired the name ‘Mureda’. She was orphaned in one of the many battles across the region, remained hidden and protected here by a knight. So, the house became known as ‘The House of the Moor’ or ‘La casa de Mureda’. This was in tribute to the brave young girl’s plight in a time of great conflict. Amphorum Rosado Palido Garnacha, Mureda is a youthful and vibrant wine made from 100% Garnacha. This rose is bright and intense with delightful cherry, raspberry and strawberry flavours. Rosé garnacha/grenache wines are very tasty, refreshing and full of aromas of red fruits. As diverse as the varietal, tapas are a beautiful pairing such as bread with tomato or anchovies. In this way, you get the appetizer to be simple but refreshing. Often, cured ham is usually used as an appetizer or food tapa, and rosé wine also goes with it perfectly, since deli meats usually go hand in hand with this wine. That’s why, soft cheeses like Camembert or Brie, or recipes, for example, pasta with cheese or cream sauce, are a wise choice to eat while you take a typology of this wine. In addition, recipes that contain egg, such as scrambled eggs, poached egg, or stuffed hard-boiled eggs. Best crack-on then!

    This cuvée gets its name from the round pebbles in the vineyards. The vineyard is composed of multiple plots, each with their own distinct characteristics which give this wine its incredible complexity: Bois de la Ville and Les Serres have a deficient and filtering gravel bed making for perfect draining of water which forms great concentration of flavour in the grapes. Farguerol and Cansaud have red and blue clays which lend to the extremely rich aromatics of the wine. Finally, Cabrières and Revès, with chalky, limestone soils bring the overall structure and long finish to the blend. André Brunel Châteauneuf-du-Pape Rouge 'Les Cailloux' is a blend of Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre. The Syrah component is first aged in barrique; then, after the final blending, the new wine is aged for a further 18 months in large oak casks. This is a powerful, herb and plum scented Châteauneuf, with layers of spicy flavours and a long, elegant finish.

    Mesogeia, located in East Attica, Greece, is the place where this wine was made. For some, it is better known as the area surrounding parts of Athens. Compared to wine-producing regions such as Santorini or Crete, this area is on the south edge of continental Greece, where the micro climate for grape growth is definitely different from that on those islands. Thanks to the dry and long summers during the grape growing season, grape varieties that are cultivated in the area have to be resistant to heat and drought. Since 1979, this region has had its own geographical indication of origin, which is recognised as a PGI (Protected Geographical Indication) nowadays. Aoton is the ancient Greek word that defines the finest specimen of its class. Today, this name represents the winery dedicated to producing the finest wines with over four generations of experience. This long tradition of viticulture and wine production is continued by the oenologist Gkinis St. Sotirios. The family organic vineyards cover an area of 6 hectares, spread in Mesogia Land of Attica Region, where the climate is temperate Mediterranean with hot, dry summers and mild winters. This wine is made from a blend of Savatiano 70% + Roditis 30% Peania, from the 1.5 hectars vineyards at Mesogeia Attica on clay sand soils. Hand-picked, then vinified in stainless steel with 6 months of batonnage. Good to go with vegetable risotto, this wine can also be an excellent pairing to fresh salmon and sea urchins. If you’d like to eat like a Greek, have the wine with a youthful graviera cheese besides fava dip and red onion; if you are a fan of Japanese food, go bold and try it with sashimi

    Aoton is the ancient word for the finest specimen of its kind, something that represents the wines of the winery: fine quality with faith in the authenticity of the Mediterranean and the potential of the varieties. The night harvest, the 8 months with the fine lees, the pure pine resin, the oenologist Sotiris Gkinis, are all what make the rosé Retsina Lola of the Aoton winery special. This unique wine is made according to the classic white wine vinification process, with the addition of a small quantity of pine-resin to the 100% Mandilaria must during fermentation. The power of the fermentation dissolves the resin, leaving behind subtle resinous undertones. A wine with a very delicate taste and aroma, it brings the scent of dried strawberries, raspberries and pine needles. On the palate, flavours of melon and strawberries float over botanical base notes. The wine is perfect with, sardines, spicy sausages, and any olive-oil based dish
  • Retsina is a traditional Greek wine style which is flavoured with pine resin. If you've only ever tried the industrially-produced versions, don't let this put you off for life. The best examples of the style are genuine fine wines with a unique character and heritage. Aoton make one of the best, and it's worth going into a little detail about the winemaking process to show just how much care and attention is involved. A blend of 75% Savatiano and 25% Roditis, the fruit comes from organically farmed vineyards planted in the mid 1990's. From organic vineyards of 1,65 hectares at Gonetses-Markopoulo and Gropeza-Peania. The grapes are picked by hand in the cool of the night and the must is wild yeast fermented in stainless steel with 10 days of skin contact. During fermenation, 0.5g per litre of Aleppo pine resin, collected traditionally by hand from the forest of Kouvaras, is added. The wine is then aged for 10 months on its lees before bottling. Pale copper, light body. Herbs and floral nose.

    Aperol was originally produced by the Barbieri company, based in Padua, but is now produced by the Campari Group. While Aperol was originally created in 1919, by Luigi and Silvio Barbieri, it did not become successful until after World War II. Although it tastes and smells much like Campari, Aperol has an alcohol content of 11%—less than half that of Campari. Aperol and Campari have the same sugar content, and Aperol is less bitter in taste. Campari is also much darker in colour. Aperol is an Italian bitters apéritif made of gentian, rhubarb, and cinchona, among other ingredients. It has a vibrant orange hue. Its name comes from the Italian slang word for aperitivo, which is apero.

  • Baileys Irish Cream is an Irish cream liqueur, an alcoholic drink flavoured with cream, cocoa and Irish whiskey. It is made by Diageo at Nangor Road, in Dublin, Ireland and in Mallusk, Northern Ireland. It is the original Irish cream, invented by a team headed by Tom Jago in 1971 for Gilbeys of Ireland. It has a declared alcohol content of 17% by volume. The formulation of Baileys was motivated partly by the availability of alcohol from a money-losing distillery (part of International Distillers & Vintners, and probably W&A Gilbey) and a desire to use surplus cream from another business, Express Dairies, owned by Grand Metropolitan, resulting from the increased popularity of semi-skimmed milk. It included alcohol, cream and the chocolate milk-based drink powder Nesquik produced by Nestle; the initial formulation process took approximately 45 minutes. Baileys was introduced in 1974 as the first Irish cream on the market. The name is that of a restaurant owned by John Chesterman, who granted W&A Gilbey permission to use it. The fictional R.A. Bailey signature was inspired by The Bailey's Hotel in London, though the registered trademark omits the apostrophe. One of life’s most pleasurable indulgences, Baileys Original Irish Cream is the sweetest meeting of fine Irish whiskey and spirits, Irish dairy cream, rich chocolate and vanilla flavours. The result? Complete deliciousness. Drink neat over ice, shake into cocktails, drizzle over ice-cream, bake a Baileys-tastic cake – perhaps even share it if you have to – Baileys Original Irish Cream equals pure, unadulterated pleasure. Go on, you know you want to!

    Banks 5 Island is a blend of five rums from distilleries in Trinidad, Barbados and Guyana. They add a little Batavia Arrack from Java and the result is a beautiful cocktail rum. Highly recommended
