Pinot Grigio

Pinot Noir, Cabernet Sauvignon and Temperanillo are all red grape varities.

Malbec

Historically planted first in Bordeaux, the Malbec grape has flourished in Argentina since its arrival in the 19th century and is now the country’s dominant grape with over 50,000 acres of plantings.

Italy

Chianti is a winemaking region in the rolling hills of Tuscany.

True

Riesling originated along the Rhine in Germany and has distinctive aromatic flavours with high acid levels. It can be used to make dry, semi-sweet, sweet and sparkling wines.

Syrah

It is called Syrah in its country of origin, France, and throughout most of the winemaking world. It was the Australians who took up the name change.

°C 14-18

The higher the tannin level the warmer you should serve the wine. Full-bodied reds served at room temperature will allow all the aromas and flavours to be fully realised.

The Rhone Valley

A small village situated in South-East France just a few kilometres away from the Rhone.

Spain

Crianza, Reserva and Gran Reserva are labelling terms given to Spanish wines to indicate how long they have been aged for. A Crianza is aged for a minimum of one year in oak barrels, Reserva is minimum one year in oak barrels and three years in the bottle

Light, Medium, Full

Chardonnay is the world’s most versatile grape and grown in every wine making country, hence its different styles. So when someone says they don’t like Chardonnay they certainly haven’t tried them all.
