Malbec is a lush, ripe wine with dark concentrated flavours. It contains beautiful black fruit flavours and aromatics of spice and some floral notes at times. Malbec is renowned for its ability to deliver full-flavoured, fruity reds with nuances of leather, game and smoke, making it as perfect a choice for a summer barbecue as for sipping in the depths of winter. Old world malbec such as Cahors is a tannic, rustic-tasting black wine, whereas Argentine malbec has a velvety texture, overt dark-fruit flavours and spicy vanilla notes conferred by oak.

The early-ripening sauvignon blanc grape makes dry whites characterised by a pure, zesty and herbaceous character. In general, sauvignon blanc is used to make dry wines, distinctive for their fresh acidity and beautiful perfume. In cooler climates the wines such as Sancerre and Pouilly Fume often have bright citrus and mineral notes combined with a green nettle character. Outside of the old world such as New Zealand and Chile you’ll find those distinctive vibrant, pungent, ripe, exotic fruit and gooseberry flavours.
White Zinfandel is generally sweet, pink, and less complex than many other rosé varieties. They are full of luscious pineapple and strawberry flavours and taste deliciously fruity. Great served chilled with appetisers, summer fruits, chicken, seafood and cheeses. Pundits often quote this wine for ‘having introduced more Americans to wine on the table than any other in history.’
Prosecco is made from the Glera grape variety grown in two regions of Northern Italy. Prosecco is an elegant wine with a lingering finish, full of Citrus and pear flavours with peach blossom aromas. This fresh, fruity style of sparkling wine is made for drinking young and with slightly higher levels of residual sugar than Champagne and Cava. Serve chilled as an aperitif, with a salmon starter or even with spicy cuisine. In Italy, Prosecco is traditionally served with cake. We also think it makes a great party-starter as it’s sweetly fruity enough to drink on its own.
Pinot Grigio wines will often have tropical and tree fruit flavours, while less mature grapes will have more prominent hints of citrus fruit. Pinot Grigio is almost always made to be a dry white wine with either a light or medium body. Classic examples such as wines from the mountainous regions of Northern Italy is charmingly light and fresh with mouth-watering citrus, peach and floral aromas. It’s brilliant drunk on its own as an aperitif or with salads and creamy cheeses.
The Merlot style is of a soft texture and easy, fruit-forward character of ripe plums, summer fruits and touches of vanilla and spice. It makes some of the best value reds as well as some of the most expensive wines.
In the Old world an entry-level claret will have flavours that are unoaked, simple and fruity, drinkable young and very approachable, however in some of the better areas of Bordeaux merlot makes some of the most expensive, complex, age-worthy and sought-after wines made anywhere. In the New World merlot from Chile, Australia & South Africa can be full-bodied, plummy and spicy. Good examples make for very easy drinking at an anyday price.
A rich, powerful, full bodied and sometimes meaty red wine that originated in the Rhône Valley of France. Syrah is the most planted grape of Australia, where they call it Shiraz. The wines have intense fruit flavours and medium-weight tannins.
